Adding attachments in CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO


How to add attachments in CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro?


One of the unique features of CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO is that it can automatically add file or files to the messages on the Exchange Server. You can set up this feature on the Actions tab, after you select AddAdd attachments. However, automated attachments are also available as part of the Auto respond action. In order to access the settings, you need to click the "..." button next to the attachments field (Fig. 1.).

A new properties pane will display settings. There are two possible ways to add file or files to the auto respond messages.

  1. By using Fixed path option. In this case, you do not point to a specific folder but you create a list to individual files. All of them will be added to a message centrally on the Exchange server. You can use two buttons: Add and Remove to add specific file's location or remove files that are no longer required (Fig. 2.).

  2. By using Hot folder option. In this case you specify a folder on your server. All files in that folder will be automatically added to the defined messages. In order to use this option, click on the drop down list and select Hot folder (Fig. 3.).

    Now, the properties pane has changed. All you need to do is to point to the specific folder location. In order to do so, click the browse (...) button and select a folder (Fig. 4.).

    After you finish setting up either of the above two options in CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO, you need to click the Save button on the main toolbar of the program.

Bear in mind that the files will be added to the messages if they meet the defined conditions (created on the Conditions tab) and are not on the exceptions list (created on the Exceptions tab).
