Hi froggy bill, Stefri's solution should do the trick, but realize you can also do with rules wizard

Stefri, why not use the rule when message arrives to print it? Maybe I'm missing something, but that is one of the standard actions

Are you sure it will print the attached file? I thought that 'print it' would print the massage body and nothing else as when using Print from file menu. I am using rules to move mails to specific folders so I am not really comfortable with Rules Wizard. If you are right, I have lost my time in the mentionned thread re-inventing the wheel but anyway it was funny to write the code ;-()

No Stefri, how silly of me. I didn't pay attention to the fact that it was the attachments. I am not even certain that rules wizard will do that, so I am going to test it. I need to be more observant :)

OK, I can confirm that the rule wizard does, in fact, print the email and the attachment.
Stefri, your code is wornderful, as usual :)

Which version do you use? In OL2K, if I have an attachement, it is not printed.
Is there a specific option to have attachments printed?

I would like a solution that is completely workstation independent, no workstation running Ol2k.
