Multiple Exchange Profiles open at same time -- Client Side Rule Script

Ok, heres the scenario.

I have the need to run a script that will extract any attachment and save to a target directory against an incoming email.  since this type of rule is client side, i have to have the outlook client running at all times so the script can run.  this process works.  

here is my question:

I have 3 email boxes that need to run this same script (with a different target save directory) : how do I:
a) have 3 client side rules run against 3 mailboxes without having 3 Pcs logged in at all times (can i have 3 mail profiles/ outlook sessions running concurrently).
b) can this be made to run in some kind of unattended(not logged in/ not profile specific) mode?
I am open to suggestions

The code works like a champ for a single mailbox/single profile in a client side rule.

Thanks in advance

Nate

This is very easy.

You can't have more than one MAPI profile running at any one time.
You are either stuck with three machines, or doing something with virtual machines.

There were some third party event sinks kicking around that did something similar. You will need to see if you can find them. An Event Sink would do a similar job for you and not require Outlook to be on all the time.

What are your programming skills like?

This is the MSDN section on Event Sinks.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/e2k3/e2k3/_techsel_tech_7.asp

The only event sink I know of that was pre-built was for Exchange 5.5, but that doesn't work on Exchange 200x, as I had a client try to use it. It came from the cdolive.com web site, which appears to no longer work.

If you don't have development skills yourself then you would have to get one written for you.
