    We are using Automation Engine V9.00A.  Can UC4 receive an inbound email with a file attachment and save that file attachment to the local file system?  We have a request to build an integration workflow where the source system can only email out the file.  Let me know if this is possible.  Thanks!

    If I remember correctly, there's some exchange agent that GSO has but I don't remember what it's abilities are. You might check that out.

    You might want to review the What is an email agent discussion. 

    I haven't used it but it appears to address some (all?) of your requirements.

    Yes the mailagent is a GSO Solution from Automic (not an own Product).

    Heres an excerpt of the whitepaper of mail agent solution (RA solution) for use cases:

    * using input emails to drive your AE workflows (example: wait for confirmation emails
    to automatically continue your “interrupted” workflows)
    * reading attachment content with dynamic reaction (example: read figures from
    attachments and use them as input parameters for your runs)
    * Triggering emails and activation of predefined workflows (example: start certain tasks
    if requested via email only).

    for more information and an offer please contact your Account manager.

    Whitepaper enclosed.
