MailScanner alternatives


I need the ability to strip attachments from emails and add a line to the message body or something like that indicating that the attachments have been stripped and are available elsewhere. I was thinking that MailScanner can do that but to my knowledge I cannot see where it can do that.

Does anyone know of an alternative product that can or at least one that is easily extensible in Java, PERL, C ??

We are using Postfix as our mail server

That sounds like a job for procmail. You can find out more about it here:
