Claims

1. An electronic mail transmission/reception system comprising a first server device capable of transmitting/receiving via a network electronic mail composed of a mail body and an attachment added to the mail body, wherein,
the first server device includes: electronic mail separation means for separating the received electronic mail into the mail body and the attachment; and file format determination means for determining the file format of the separated attachment and allowing/disallowing the attachment to be transmitted depending on the type of the determined file format, the first server device storing the attachment allowed to be transmitted by the file determination means and the mail body corresponding to the attachment.
2. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 1, wherein the first server device includes file size determination means for determining the file size of the attachment separated by the electronic mail separation means, and allowing/disallowing the attachment to be transmitted depending on the magnitude of the determined file size, the first server device storing the attachment allowed to be transmitted by the file size determination means and the mail body corresponding to the attachment.
3. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 1, wherein the first server device includes: transmission period restriction means for allowing a predetermined attachment to be transmitted only within a period in which transmission is allowed; and transmission delay means for delaying transmission of a predetermined attachment until arrival of a period in which transmission is allowed.
4. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 1, wherein,
the first server device includes: code generation means for generating a transmission request code for use by a predetermined client terminal device to request attachment transmission of the first server device; and code appending means for appending to a mail body the transmission request code for an attachment corresponding to the mail body, and
the client terminal device in the electronic mail transmission/reception system uses the transmission request code to request attachment transmission of the first server device, so that the first server device transmits to the client terminal device the attachment corresponding to the transmission request code.
5. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 4, comprising a second server device capable of transmitting/receiving electronic mail to/from the first server device via the network, wherein,
the first server device includes mail body transmission means for transmitting to the second server device the mail body having the transmission request code appended thereto, and
a client terminal device connected to the second server device in the electronic mail transmission/reception system uses the transmission request code to request attachment transmission of the first server device, so that the first server device transmits the attachment corresponding to the transmission request code to the client terminal device connected to the second server device.
6. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 2, wherein the first server device counts the number of attachments separated by the electronic mail separation means, the number of attachments disallowed to be transmitted by the file format determination means, and the number of attachments disallowed to be transmitted by the file size determination means.
7. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 1, wherein the first server device erases a stored attachment after a predetermined period of time since its storage.
8. The electronic mail transmission/reception system according to claim 3, wherein the first server device, when requested by the client terminal device to transmit the attachment, requests the client terminal device to perform an authorization procedure for authorizing transmission of the attachment.
