Hi,

Something like :

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
var
  i, j: integer;
  fname: string;
begin
  try
    with NMPOP31 do begin
      if not Connected then Connect;
      if MailCount > 0 then begin
        for i := 1 to MailCount do begin
          GetMailMessage(i);
          if MailMessage.Attachments.Count > 0 then begin
            for j := 0 to MailMessage.Attachments.Count - 1 do begin
               fname := ExtractFileName(MailMessage.Attachments[j]);
               CopyFile(PChar(MailMessage.Attachments[j]), PChar('c:\emails\'+ fname), false); // copy a file
            end;
          end;  
        end;
      end;
    end;
  except
    // error
  end;
end;

Regards, Geo

Please, if you have Delphi6, DO NOT use NMPop3. The NetMasters components are notorious
for being buggy and haven;t been updated since 1998. They also do not include sourcecode.
Use Indy (included with D6)  or ICS Instead.
