Multipart Bodypart Conversion


The Multipart Bodypart Conversion filter is typically used to compress a MIME message before FTPing a message to an FTP server. A simple policy containing a Multipart Bodypart Conversion filter as a predecessor of an FTP Upload filter could be written to achieve this functionality.

The Multipart Bodypart Conversion filter outputs a content.body message attribute, which represents the last part processed. For example, in a three part multi-type message, the value of the content.body attribute is the third and last part in the series.


The following fields must be configured on this filter screen:


Enter a suitable name for this filter.

Multipart Content Type:

Enter the MIME content type that you want to compress the multipart message to. For example, to compress a multipart message to a ZIP file, enter multipart/x-zip in this field.
