We hold pointers to internal documents as URLs on our .dot net intranet.
Users can attach links to documents and send internally and all is well, but users outside the company cannot access them.
Need a service that at the Internet Mail Connection (IMC), identifies link attachments (based on pattern), and calls a secondary process that resolves link and places document on filesystem. that replaces the link with actual file. ( I will be responsible for the fetch process, and return new path to actual document)
The attached document will then be sent to the external user.
Incoming emails with documents should have the reverse procedure. Documents , are to be replaced with url link.
Should work with Exchange 2000 and above, and be independent of Outlook
