Can I forward emails without attachments?

Posted

Hi

I have emails coming in to a specific folder and each has an attachment. These are automatically forwarded to a new user who does not need the attachments.

Can I still automatically forward any new emails but strip the attachment before sending?

Brian

Hi

I had read that already and it covers manual forwarding and manual deletion of attachment. Doing this up to 100 times a day is counter-productive.

As I specified in the OP I need to automatically strip attachments and automatically forward.

With FiltaQuilla installed, you can add a filter action that Detaches attachments to a folder. If this action is added before the 'Forward Message to' action, it should work - but I recommend some testing to make sure it doesn't forward before the detaching is completed.
