    Default Stripping off attachments

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how you might be able to strip attachments off of an email, but leave the message in the Inbox?

    Many of our users have exhausted the quota that we have allotted them. Some have been given upwards of 5 gig and still request more space.

    A solution that would work for us is if we had the ability to remove unneeded attachments from their messages, but allow them to hang on to the actual email. In most cases they need to retain the information in the message, but don't need the attached (sometimes ridiculously large) file... as they have already saved the attachment to their own machine.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Thanks for showing me that. I looked everywhere for a similar thread. Must have been using the wrong words to search.

    It would be nice to have something like this built into zimbra. Atm when this happens I've loaded the users account via imap into thunderbird and used the "attachment extractor" addon to strip the attachments out to their home directory.

    Thankfully it's only been a couple of people that have needed this. It's not a process that scales.
