    Email attachments to folder?

    We're using Exchange 2007 here and we're looking at the possibility of having pupils emailing an attachment to an email address which is then extracted and put into a specific folder for a teacher to access?
    Is there anything out there that can do such a thing or does anyone have any suggestions as to how this can be done?

    Ta!

    In theory you could enable imap/pop for the mailbox and use php/asp to poll the mailbox and do the actions. Put it in a scheduled task and your done. Also I think sharepoint 2010 can do this sort of thing.

    I believe there is an option to add a mailbox to a public folder in Exchange, so all e-mails go to that folder?

    Hi

    1. Why not have the email sent to the teacher, teacher can use an Outlook rule to put email into a folder of their choice in their mailbox.
    2. Use Public Folders as mentioned above. Create a public folder, mail-enable this folder, provide email to students, students email, teacher accesses public folder.
    3. Use Sharepoint (if this is deployed)
