    MS office pro plus-outlook...mailbox full,need to "save"attachments


    My issue is with microsoft office pro plus.

    This software is currently working on a windows 7 machine so not strictly for this forum.

    The software interacts with a mail server belonging to my employer.

    The issue is that i have dozens of emails which have attachments . Each attachment is a multi page pdf document.

    I need to find a way of saving off all those attachments perhaps to an external drive so that they dont go missing/get lost hence why i cant just delete them.



    Can anyone suggest a way forward please?

    it's outlook you can simply click and hold on the attachment and drag it where you want it, or you can right click the attachment and click save to from the menu that pops up. worst thing that's going to happen is your system security might ask you if you really want to save it to the system.

    No, copy the script to notepad and save it as Attachments.vbs (or whatever name - NB: select all files in the saveas type dialog - otherwise you may get .vbs.txt)

    NB change "C:\Temp" to where you want to save the attachments - Outlook does not need to be running.
