We have an outlook application that creates a task type item from a mail message when a button is pressed. The mail item may have attachments.  Does anybody know a simple way to move all the attachments from the mail message to the task message using VB script.

Thank You!

Unfortunately, there's no way to do this directly. You must use the SaveAsFile method on each file to create a system file, use the Attachments.Add method to add each attachment to the Task, then delete the system files you created.
