I know this is not 100% on-topic, but I'll try anyway...
I'm looking for a way to strip attachments from incoming mails on the server.
The attachments should be stored on a file server (where users have access
via SAMBA) and only a link to the file (UNC path) should remain in the mail
body. This is to prevent the mail storage from filling up with a large amount
of big mails where at the same time the 'payload' (attached file) is not
conveniently accessible by the users.
The current setup is postfix / dovecot deliver / dovecot (with sieve plugin).
I'm considering piping the mails through something like mimeStrip.pl
(http://freshmeat.net/projects/mimestrip.pl/), but therefore I'd probably
need to bring procmail/maildrop into the game, right?
Or are there other (better) ways to accomplish this?
