Delivering emails to a directory on a file server?
Does anyone know if there is a way to have certain system emails delivered to a particular folder on a file server rather than to a mailbox? Our network team would like to have monitoring emails from Nagios sent to a monitored folder and then have the emails deleted after a particular time via a script.
We are running Outlook 2007 on Exchange 2007 SP3. file servers are Win Server 2008.
Emails delivered to a disk folder? Why? Do they not use email? Do they not have desktop clients for email?
How are the emails to be named on disk?
I would love to hear a good argument for this.
You can easily have piece of powershell/vba/c# code running that monitors a mailbox once a day and deletes items older than X hours/days/weeks.
