Is there a download server manager or software that can receive an email that contains a url to a downloadable file and download

Hi at my work we need software or server that can receive an email that contains a url to a downloadable file and download it, after the server downloads the file it will store it in a shared folder. After it needs to confirm the sender of the email it has finished downloading.
Is there something similar already done or can I get ideas to be able to accomplish this?
The reason for this type of software or server is that we don’t want to give all our users downloading privileges because everyone will download unrelated content to the job like movies or malicious software.

Maybe. If every machine in the house is subject to Windows policy, you might be able to enforce a default download folder for every instance of Internet explorer. However, if someone uses a different browser (Your choice of apps can be controlled by policy as well.) then all bets are off. It would require very strict policies on every Windows machine. On the other hand, there is no reason to limit them to a single shared file space. Just prohibit downloads altogether.
