    Compressing Attachments... afterwards (Outlook 2000)

    I have a lot of emails in several Personal folder file archives. I'm looking for a utility that scans them all, opens the ones with attachments, ZIP's the attachments (moving the original attachments into the ZIP-file)and resaves the emails.

    Checked the net but only find tools that zip/unzip during the sending/receiving process... Any hints?

    You would have to write OL code to do that. Look for <!profile=jscher2000>jscher2000<!/profile>'s code posts, and all code posts here in Ol with .Attachments, and <!post=here,200296>here<!/post> is one of mine that reviews all e-mail items in a selected PST and counts them, which could work as a starting point to check each item in one PST for attachments. Writing the calls to your zip program will be your problem! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    If you get it done, can you post the code?

    ZipOut looks exactly what I'm looking for; I'll give it a try, thanks!

    Thanks for your tips... I'm checking out ZipOut first (see parallel thread); will get back to this if that fails!
