Using Rules to forward calendar invites without attachments

Our company does not allow certain documents to be sent outside the organization. I do not have a Blackberry, therefore can't use the RIM technology to keep my phone's calendar sync'd to my company calendar. I use an android based phone, gmail and Google Calendar on my phone. I have setup a rule to forward all messages after they arrive in my Outlook 2007 inbox, which are invites or updates to invites to my gmail acct which posts them to my G-Calendar. The issue is that the attachments are also forwarded and I do not want to forward those attachments, only the calendar invite. Any advise?

i know of no way to forward the messating without attachments - you might be able to use VBA to remove the attachment but i don't have any code samples. Plus it would require outlook to be running.

Are you using Exchange server with Exchange active sync enabled? Syncing directly to Exchange would be the best option.
