Hi everyone,

I have a n application that will send emails to the user whenever a file is uploaded in our FTP site. This email will have the file attached to it.

When my user receices the email is there a way to download the attached file to a folder that will be specified in the subject of the email, automatically?
Maybe thru a macro?

thank you,
Abovet

Greetings, adrianabovet.

Not possible.  Outlook does not allow any scripts in an email at all.  The only way you'd be able to accomplish this would be to write and distribute a macro that runs at the user's computer.  It'd watch for messages matching some set of conditions.  When it found one, it'd fire and the macro code would do what you described.  This solution will work well for in-house use so long as there are too many computers involved (there's no good means of distributing Outlook macros).  It is not a good solution for anything else.

Cheers!
