| Some of the files that I need to process come in the form of e-mail attachments. Since I can't do it out of the box, I looked at the following solutions. But neither one is for me. Is there an alternative? How do you process e-mail attachments for SSIS
Download Mail Task from Codeplex
A great idea, but it just doesn't work. It may work (or may once have worked) with SQL 2005, but I can't get it to work on SQL 2005 & it definitely doesn't work in 2008. Though this still might be the cheapest alternative if I outsource the work
Receive Mail Task from Cozyroc
Clearly the easiest solution. I only mention it so that no one else suggests it to me. The project I'm working on can't invest $2.5K
Then I figured, maybe I would use something else & refer to the files locally. But the only free software I found has one final update which basically says it is not working. No previous versions are offered.
Tips, ideas, conclusions?
