How do you forward just a simple email with an attachment only?
In the email filter there is no checkbox for just a simple "has attachment".

It would also be great to know how many attachments are in each email. I am forwarding messages with invoices to an external payment processor (company). Aonther restriction are messages with more than 1 attachment are not allowed to be forwarded. The processor only allows 1 attachment per email forwarded. Is there a way to get a count of how many attachments in in each message?

I hope someone can help.
Hi,
How do you forward just a simple email with an attachment only?

To forward the email being processed you have to use an action of type "Forward current email". It will automatically attach to the outgoing email the current attachments, as if you click Forward in a normal email app. (see the 1st screenshot attached)


The processor only allows 1 attachment per email forwarded


This is more tricky to do. It would require you to save all the attachments in a folder with the "Save current email attachments" action and then write a small C# script that does the following:

// For each attachment in the folder
// Copy the file to a temp directory
// Call "Send an email with only one attachment", attachment is taken from the temp dir
// Delete the file in the temp directory
// Delete the file in the folder where we saved all the attachments
// end
