    Question Off-Server Attachments ...


    Just an idea I'm playing around with and was wondering if it is possible !?

    I would like to put something in place (not quite sure what) that would scan incoming messages to Zimbra, and if there was an attachment, strip the attachment from the mail and move it via REST or SOAP to another server. I would then need to edit the message to include a hyperlink to the file on the other server.

    Is this possible !? How would I go about setting this up !?

    All input would be greatly appreciated.

    We don't have server extension hooks yet (which would allow this type of plugin), but it's something we plan to add in the future.

    Check out this forum thread:

    This was my thread originally for doing something similar to your request via postfix. Dux T used the solution (I think he came up with it... read the whole thread for proper credits) to attach a footer to every message.

    Basically you are taking the mail message, altering it and injecting it back into the Zimbra process. You would have to write an external script to remove, upload, and link the attachments but it should be fairly trivial as there are mime handling routines in most scripting languages.
