Is there a way to strip attachments from Office 365 instead of doing it directly from the Outlook client? We have a program now that strips attachments from an Outlook account and save them to a folder but for this to work the user needs to be logged in and the Outlook client up. I wanted to find out if there is a way to do it from Office 365 so that the program is not dependent on a users pc to do this.

Hello
Build-in feature in Office365 does not exist.


A solution may exists via VBA macro as you said but as I can imagine you have already used it

However, the link
