How Can I save multiple attachments from many e-mail’s all at once. In other words, highlight many emails, “File - save attachments” to a given folder on my desktop.

Can I create a rule that will take an email from a given folder, and automatically save the attachment to a folder on my desktop?

    Greetings, InfoTeam.

    You can do it with a rule and a macro.  Is that an option?

    rules would be ok. Macro would not

    There's no way to do this with a rule alone.  It requires code to handle a portion of the task.  If you can't use a macro, then a third-party add-in is your only other alterntaive.  If you can't use either, then I'm afraid it's not possible.
