Remove attachment using transport rule RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi

    Is there any way to remove ALL attachments from emails that is destined for a specific mailbox?

    This mailbox is not to receive emails with attachments (as confidential), but receive the message , subject.

    This is basically to alert someone to do perform an action.

     

    Thanks

  • Transport rules filtering came about with 2010 (See this) so natively you can't do this.  You may have to look at an alternative product or maybe upgrade to 2010.

  • Thanks for your prompt response.

    Can you think of a solution to this;

    When mailbox A receives an email, it triggers an email to mailbox b (external smtp address). The email to mailbox is an alert (can be a blank email) , but should contain the on-forwarded attachment.

    hope this make sense.

  • No clean solution. 

    Can't you just set an forward so emails are delievered to both, the external user can just setup a simple rule to move all email from mailbox a sub-folder and the sort by attachment.
