Embedded Msg, in Outlook, with a Word Doc - how to get at Embedded Msg as Attachment?
Posted on 2007-10-02
I have code that I have experimented with, that is looking at a particular Mail folder, and looking for infomation within an attachment, that has an attachment.
An Email in the inbox, has an embedded email message, that has a Word Document attached.
So, Last Sender, sends an email, from First Sender that is an embedded attachment, and There is
a Word Document from First Sender.
I can get to the embedded email- of First Sender which looks like a FILE with an extension of .Msg
and I can save that to disk, and when I open it from disk, I see the word Doc attachment.
Dim objOutLook As Outlook.Application
Dim objNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim objFolders As Outlook.Folders
Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objItem As Outlook.MailItem
Dim objAttachment As Attachment
Dim objParmAttachment As Object
Dim objFSO As FileSystemObject
Dim strSaveToPath As String
Dim strFilename As String
Dim intCount As Integer
strSaveToPath = "C:\Data\Test\"
Set objOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objNameSpace = objOutLook.GetNamespace("MAPI") ' Reference Outlook namespace
Set objFolders = objNameSpace.Folders.Item("Mailbox - Support").Folders
If objFolders.Count > 0 Then
Set objFolder = objFolders.Item("Inbox")
'* the objFolder of the Inbox has the Items to be Processed
'* We can then get access to each item by looping through the inbox
'* And we can determine if there are attachements in the item.
Set objItem = objFolder.Items(1)
If objItem.Attachments.Count > 0 Then
Set objAttachment = objItem.Attachments.Item(1)
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strFilename = objAttachment.FileName
intCount = 1
Do While True
If objFSO.FileExists(strSaveToPath & strFilename) Then
strFilename = objFSO.GetBaseName(objAttachment.FileName) & "(" & intCount & ")." & objFSO.GetExtensionName(objAttachment.FileName)
intCount = intCount + 1
objAttachment.SaveAsFile strSaveToPath & strFilename
.......... END OF CODE CLIP
I am hitting my head on the wall trying to see how to get this.
