We are adding some features to an existing support ticket center handling system and need help on a Perl subroutine(s) to better handle file attachments.
We are currently using these Perl libraries:
Here is what we need a set of Perl subroutines to handle:
Step 1: we need a Perl subroutine that can tell us if a given e-mail message being checked does/does not have a file attached
Step 2: we need Perl subroutine(s) that can then do any one of the following, for any given attached file on an email message:
- Delete attached file
- Save attached file in a preset/configurable file on same server
- Strip attachments after forwarding a copy of original email
Basically... the end result should be a Perl script that can all the above routines, check for emails at a configured POP mail box and then demonstrate the 3 functions above on file attachments included in the test emails being checked.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
