  • No, SSIS can't do that without a Script Task, or a Custom Task.  And I wouldn't recommend attempting it in an unattended server-side process, regardless of the mechanism.

  • any final solution ? too for inline images ?

    www.kiquenet.com/profesional

    The final solution is to use third-party commercial task like COZYROC Receive Mail Task. It supports Exchange, IMAP and POP3 protocols for downloading messages from email server. The task also allows extraction of email attachment. No programming skills are required.
