An appeal for help from the community..
In one of our offices we have a multifunction machine that acts as copier, scanner, fax etc. Received faxes are set to be emailed to a special email alias that is assigned to the person tasked to distribute the messages to the intended recipients. FYI, the server was running the latest Mercury32 and all clients run PMail. The mail sent by the device does not have a valid date. We have raised this with the suppliers who have submitted an error report to the manufacturers, but I am not holding my breath. My best hope is that a software solution on the server may be possible.

Fax Job : Receive
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Trevert_051225_001.tif"
As can be seen from the above extract, the message is sent without any timestamp. Thus, theses received faxes are VERY hard to keep track of.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to craft a script to be called by Mercury that could add a time- and date-stamp on messages from a particular origin?
First prize (but probably asking too much) would be to be able to take the Fax Job : Received info, together with the information on the line that follows that one and make that the Subject line of the email message.
Any ideas would be appreciated..
