Attachment Ripper and Displacement System

Attachment Ripper and Displacement System (aradis) is a filter that removes attachments from email. The removed attachment is sent to a specified resource for storage. The attachment is replaced with a notice of where the removed attachment may be found. The filter can also rename filenames for security. It uses GMime for MIME handling.

    Release Notes: Anonymous attachments are now given a name according to the MIME type. The ability to insert replacement messages as HTML instead of plain text was added.

    •  08 Nov 2005 10:52

      Release Notes: The filte now uses the configured SYSCONFDIR to determine where the default config file should be. More fail-safe operation was achieved. A default config is now used if no config file is found. x86_64 64-bit fixes were made along with improvements to the build system.

      •  11 Nov 2004 10:39

        Release Notes: This version was updated against GMime 2.1.9. The usefork option was removed as it could do more harm than good. The entire config file is now read regardless of size. UTF8 filename handling was improved. All attachments should now be inspected regardless of their depth in a message. Preliminary support for Debian packages was added.

          Second try.
          My email is in the HACKING file.
          You can coax configure to find libcrypto (which is not always needed, my bad).

          Send me an email.
          Cheers

          Only the cleanmail option removes attachments.
          The rename option can rename based on file extensions. It does not remove anything.

          I guess this is just because I prefer renaming potentially dangerous things to something safe, rather than removing them.

          The documentation will hopefully improve. Maybe when I know there are other users than myself :)

          Cheers,

          Great project
          Aradis is a great tool, though the documentation has not quite caught up to the functionality.

          I'm curious. I can't tell from the documentation. Is there a way to discard certain mime types / file extensions ?
