Attachment Alert

By: rrao

Note: This Zimlet is now deprecated, please go to the new and up to date Zimlet - https://www.zimbra.org/extend/items/view/configurable-attachment-alert

This Zimlet alerts you when sending a message if no attachment exists. The Zimlet will search for keywords in your message (for example, "attach" or "attachment"). And if the keywords exist in your outgoing message, the Zimlet will confirm that at least one attachment exists before sending. If no attachments exist, an alert dialog is presented.

  • Works well - help with modification

    Hi Thanks for the Zimlet. I have tried to modify the Zimlet to detect types of attachments we do not want sent out (Microsoft Office editable) - we only allow PDFs out of the company.In order to do this I have used the list of words in AttachmentAlert_attach in com_zimbra_attachmentalert.properties. I am then trying to scan the list of attachments for these extensions. My relevant lines of code are: var attachArray = mail.getAttachmentInfo(); var newMailArry = attachArray.contains(attachWord);where attchWord is from the array of banned extensions.However this seems to crash - the buttons grey and no popup window.Any ideas?
