Automatic execution of macros in outlook

I have a macro (VBA) defined in outlook that searches my inbox and locates the post from certain people.

It then checks to see if there are attachments and then extracts them to a directory where a process awaits the data for further processing.

At the moment the macro can only be manually started via a button on the toolbar.

I would like to know how do I automatically start the macro everytime a new email arrives?

The rule generator does not allow the starting of macros for obvious security reasons......


Thanks!

There is a Application_NewMail event in Outlook 2000's VBA.  Will that work for you?
