saving attachments on server

Postby akashenk » Tue Feb 01, 2011 4:49 pm

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum for this question. I am developing an ASP.NET app for a client of mine who uses MailEnable on their webserver to send emails from various web applications. The client needs some functionality that would allow received email attachments to be saved in a particular directory on the web server. The directory depends on the from and/or to address of the email. Does MailEnable have the ability to automatically save attachment files in particular directories based on the email information? If so, is this avaialble in the free edition or other editions?

If MailEnable is not able to do this, does anyone know of a 3rd party software solution that could interact with MailEnable to allow the saving of email attachments in partiuclar directories on the server?

Thanks!

Another challange for code in the MTA

You wuold need code to run in the MTA

The email comes as one file so you will need to 'take it apart' to extract the attachements.

I am a .NET developer and don't have any experience coding for MailEnable. Can you point me to a resource discussing what would be necessary to do this? Thanks.

Sorry.

I never touch .net
But if you follow what I did on php, you need a library that will separate the parts of the email into header and attachements.

I only use php and coldfusion, although I will have to convert my app to VB sometime to increase the throughput.

Hello,

Did you find something? I have exactly the same issue here.

Any solution using vb.net or C# is more than welcome,

Thank you

Martin

Just to let you know that I finally used chilkat dll and vb.net application to solve the problem.

Works fast and fine :-)
