Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I work at a company that is beginning to use Lync's video conferencing abilities more, and was tasked with writing up a brief FAQ for in-house use, and one to send to people outside the company for when we video conference with them. I have also been asked to investigate a way to automatically attach said FAQ's to any outgoing invites for Lync video conferences.

I have been looking at Transport Rules for Exchange...but sadly there is no 'attach' action. I looked into using Transport Rules, but while i could find the right Predicate, there was no Action to attach a document.

So, does anyone know of a way to filter outgoing emails by subject, and add attachments to only those whose subject matches a particular set of constraints?

Also, this is my first post here on server fault, or even stack exchange in general, so please be nice to me. Let me know if you need any additional information.

Last I looked into something like this, I needed to use a 3rd party tool. –  DanBig May 1 '12 at 18:58
Yeah, i saw the product from codetwo, but i was really hoping for some solution not involving hundreds of dollars. It doesn't even have to be through exchange transport rules, just so long as it works. –  acolyte May 1 '12 at 19:06
I don't believe there is anything baked into Exchange that will accomplish this. –  DanBig May 1 '12 at 19:11
Alright then, is there anything i could do, to your knowledge of course, not involving exchange? some sort of script to scan outgoing emails and attach something? I'm not trying to be difficult or anything, just looking for some sort of solution. If you don't think there is one, i'll move on with plan B. –  acolyte May 1 '12 at 19:15
I can only speak to Exchange, sorry. –  DanBig May 1 '12 at 19:15
