Posted: 3 Dec 02

The following code will detect if there are any attachments, in an e-mail and save it to a directory.


Local lcFilename,lcPath
lcPath="c:\savedattachments\"
If  !Directory("c:\savedAttachments")
    Md "c:\savedAttachments" && Create the directory if it doesn't exist.
Endif
oOutLookObject = Createobject("Outlook.Application")
olNameSpace = oOutLookObject.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
myAtts=olNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(6).Items
For Each loItem In myAtts
    If loItem.attachments.Count >0 && Make sure there is an actual attachment.
        For i = 1 To loItem.attachments.Count
            lcFilename=""
            lcFilename = loItem.attachments.Item(i).filename
            lcFilename = Alltrim(lcPath)+lcFilename
            loItem.attachments.Item(i).SaveAsFile(lcFilename)
           *loItem.Delete() && The option to delete the message once the attachment has been saved.
