I am receiving regular e-mails in Oulook 98 containing an attachment which I need to save to a specified directory. Currently done manually - can I do it automatically ? Please do not recommend the CaSavAtt custom action.

The best you could do with Outlook 98 is to create an external application in VB, Delphi, or C/C++ that polls the inbox for unread messages and saves out the attachment(s) or write and Exchange extension DLL.  (Note: VB can't do the extension DLL part, but Delphi and C/C++ can.)

Either you can edit registry keys which I can give you if you want or have a look at the piece of software at the link below

To pyleo - thanks, but this is not quite what I hoped for. What I really want is a type of wizard that looks for a particular type of attachment and saves it to a different directory than the default.

To Neo myps - thanks, I suspect that a VB app is required - but I have little knowledge. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Sue Mosher has a great reference site at http://www.slipstick.com/dev that should introduce you to the object model, code snippets, and a bunch of links to other good sites.

If you are new to VB as well as the Outlook object model, you might want to take a look at http://www.slipstick.com/books/user.htm and review the Outlook 98 titles.  There should be one or two titles by MS Press (Building Applications in Outlook 98 is one that comes to mind) is a great starter if you are a complete newbie.

To Neo myps

Thank you.  The slapstick site was good. I think I will be able to sort something out.  I am a complete novice to VB, but willing to learn. Your comments accepted as answer - Thanks again
