Script to remove signature from received emails
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have a single Exchange mailbox that when it recceives any email, a rule/script should run that removes all images/text from the body of the email starting with the first signature in the body going from the top down. So, it should remove the first signature (if there are more than one) and everything after it. The signatures will always begin with 2 hyphens, for example '--' without the quotes. On the rare occasion that a double hypen is used in the portion of the body of the message that I don't want removed, its not a big deal and can easily be fixed. I know I need a VBA script in Outlook if I want to do this, but I have no skills for VBA coding.
This is so that users that have an IT issue can send an email to the mailbox, and then we have a program that takes any emails in the mailbox and turns them into an IT service ticket. We only have about 50 users total but it would be nice if I didn't have to manually delete the signature, disclaimer, etc from each ticket.
