    Copy attachments to network folder (2003 and/or 2007)

    I will be receiving 500 automated emails from a series of database systems on a set day every month for the next 2.5 years. Each of these emails will contain a small data file as an attachment. What I will need to do is to copy each attachment in to a network folder. Can anybody suggest a way in which I can automate this process? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    The attachment remover is a manual tool with the capability of selecting and operating on a large number of messages, and saving attachments variously to user-selected folders.

    If the messages you will receive have a common source or subject, so that a Rule could reliably operate on them, and if the location you want them filed will remain constant, it may be possible to write a completely hands-off tool for you using some of the same techniques as in the attachment manager. (There are occasional requests in the Forum for a hands-free type of attachment manager, and although the work wouldn't be trivial, there might be some value in building a code solution designed to be triggered by a Rule.)
