    Auto Save Attachment

    Hi All,

    Is there a way of setting up a rule (or whatever) to automatically save an email attachment to disk ????

    Our customers are sending orders as email attachments, and I would like to automatically save them to disk, so another routine can process them

    Many thanks in advance for any help

    - Maurice

    If you end up being inclined toward VBA rather than an add-in, you can detect a new message entering your inbox and save the attachments in code. Perhaps this thread will provide some ideas:
