It occurred to me that Sieve "replace" from draft-ietf-sieve-mime-loop-04.txt can almost do that. The only thing missing is constructing an URL, which will have an implementation/deployment specific format. One could user Sieve variables to construct text in the replace action, but only if the exact URL format is known in advance.

Could you elaborate?

Elaborate on how this can be done with Sieve variables, or elaborate on extracting attachements in general?

So, do people think that a variant of the replace action is reasonable? Should there be a new ":url" option?

:url doesn't make me feel very good. I'd have many problems getting that right.

To clarify: I was just thinking about adding a flag to the replace action, so that the action can generate and insert a unique URL. I was not proposing to pass an URL to the replace action.
