Why not use a rule in outlook or directly on the exchange server?
You can define a rule the depending on the different email attributes (to/cc/bcc, subject, attachment file type and size, categories, etc), outlook will save the file in a specified location or even run a program. There are also many 3rd party software that are designed specifically for that purpose – automatically save attachments into the filesystem (you’ll find many of them by a simple search in Google), which can be implemented together with Control-M file watching capabilities.
Let me know if you need any more information about this…

I have a case to implement a file received by mail will automatically save it in a certain location. Documentation as you would do for example with an Exchange 2003 or higher?
I have a good management of fileWATCH, but I lack the part of the exchange. Could you provide me this information?
The process I’ve described before relate to rules definitions in the outlook mail client, not in exchange, even though I know that some mail servers allow defining such rules directly via the mail server management GUI. A quick search in Google for “outlook rule save attachment” returns many results. Here are some of them (the last two are sharewares):
Disclaimer: I haven’t actually tested any of them myself. The only test I did was for triggering a Control-M CLI when a mail arrives with a certain value in one of the mail attributes (recipients, subject, mail body, category, etc…). I am sure that Robert has much more practical experience with attachments :-)
I am getting so many requirment for sending the file from control-M job.
As and when the file created need to send that file to one particular email ID with an attachment that file with a subject of the first 5 letters of filename.
Has anybody tried and appreciate if anybody
Have any of you tried something like the following:
my Company wont allow to use unix/windows utlities to send the file. they want everything to be controlled from Control-M Environment. Hence wondering if any thing we can do about it through control-M
Did you get anything related to mail a particular file to a particular mailid through Control-M
I havent get any reply or any suggestion , that would be great add on feature in control-M,
do you have any requirement like that
We actually ended up going with Email2DB. A powerful program we found that integrated quite well with Control-M.
Can you let me know ,how does it work? , it will helpful to configure the same in my Environment
