Delete specific Attachment an farward it - Outlook

  • 1.  Delete specific Attachment an farward it - Outlook

    Posted 07-29-2021 09:53
    Hi,
    I need a function with which I can delete a specific attachment from a received mail and then forward this mail afterwards or directly without this one attachment. An additional saving of the attachments and then only sending the necessary attachments in a new mail should be avoided (data protection, Security etc.) So far we have always used the Outlook VBO, but I did not find anything like that in the standard - I also have no knowledge of coding, so I need help if something has to be written as code myself to expand the VBO component or something. Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    Did you try using Graph API or you need the solution in Outlook VBO only?​

    Hello,
    
    no, I don't know them - in the end I would be fine with any solution ;-)
    
    But unfortunately I lack the deep IT knowledge for coding and APIs - unless it can be explained as a non-IT person. That's why I always like to use VBOs or existing modules.

    Hello,

    I tried to do something similar with the BP code itself. Below are some checks that can be used to eliminate unnecessary files.

    1.Check the file extension and do not add it as an attachment in the reply email.
    2.Filter on file size if you want to remove unnecessary images that get downloaded using VBO (for e.g. company logo, signature, link, etc)

    One more thing that can be useful is saving the original email as a .msg file and attach that file as an attachment when you reply to the email. This option is available in VBO.

    Hope this helps to frame some logic without a code/API-based solution.
