lotus agent “ingore” mails with attachments when event triggered

Lotus Notes error messages
OK, I have put together an agent to forward mail, it is supposed to remove any large attachment and include some data. When run manually in the UI it works perfect, however when set to run "Before mail arrives" it only forwards mail without any attachments... The code: Sub Initialize Dim s As New NotesSession Dim db As NotesDatabase Dim doc As NotesDocument Dim forward As NotesDocument Dim forwardaddress As String Dim rtitem As NotesRichTextItem Dim rtnav As NotesRichTextNavigator Dim atta As String Dim remo As String ' **** set to the address that you would like to forward mail to, maxsize of attachements **** forwardaddress = "mine@outside.com" Const MaxSize = 3000000 Set db = s.currentdatabase Set doc = s.DocumentContext Set forward = New NotesDocument(db) Call doc.CopyAllItems(forward, True) Set rtitem = forward.GetFirstItem( "Body" ) 'determine if any attachment exist, remove them if they are to big atta = "no attachments included" remo = "" If Not Isempty (rtitem.EmbeddedObjects) Then atta = "" Forall o In rtitem.EmbeddedObjects If ( o.Type = EMBED_ATTACHMENT ) And (o.FileSize > MaxSize) Then remo = "removed attachment: " atta = atta + o.source + ", " Call o.Remove Call forward.Save(True,True) End If End Forall End If 'navigation element in order to place header in front of body text Set rtnav = rtitem.CreateNavigator Call rtnav.FindFirstElement(RTELEM_TYPE_TEXTPARAGRAPH) 'print recipients into the new mail heading Call rtitem.BeginInsert(rtnav) 'all kinds of data inserted here as texts Call rtitem.EndInsert Call forward.RemoveItem("CopyTo") Call forward.RemoveItem("BlindCopyTo") forward.Send False, forwardaddress Call forward.RemovePermanently(True) End Sub Can someone please solve this? I have also tried to set the agent to run "after new mail has arrived" on all new mail messages but then nothing gets forwarded...

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Complete shot in the dark here. Given your use of constants like EMBED_ATTACHMENT and RTELEM_TYPE_TEXTPARAGRAPH, is it possible they aren’t resolving properly on the server, but are working okay on the client? What happens if you replace them with their actual values?

Also, have you checked security settings to ensure that your code can run on the server?

    Also, is an error appearing in the log? If there are errors and no error handling in the agent, they should write to the server log.
