    Hi,
    Hopefully a fairly easy question: I'm looking for an email client that can automatically save the attachment to a folder on the system. The client will need to be able to connect to an exchange server.

    I have read that FiltaQuilla for thunderbird can do that, however it doesn't work on the current version.. and haven't yet found an alternative.

    Are you sure you want to do this? An autosaved attachment could be malware or remote access trojan. If the user then double click on it, then it would be end game.

    Yep, it’s an internal only email address, and the files are automated reports in CSV format.. so I’d then use PHP to parse the csv file.
