I'm running Exchange 2007 on a Windows SBS 2008 server. Some of my users have blackberries, but we do not have a BES server. Instead we use the BIS service provided by our service provider and forward messages to the users' "blackberry email" (e.g., which makes it pop up on their blackberry.

Problem is if somebody emails the user and attaches a large picture or something, they get a bounceback error from BIS saying that the message was too large.

The forwarding is done via the Delivery Options in our Exchange server. Is it possible to configure Exchange to strip attachments out of the message before forwarding it to the blackberry?
