Create an Agent that runs on selected documents and paste the below code inside the agent.

You can run this from an action menu, or from a button.

You will notice the code is simple enough to change in order to run it on different triggers, ( e.g. automatically when new mail arrives ).

Hope this helps
Sub Initialize


	Const FILE_PATH = "D:\My Images\"



	Dim ss As New NotesSession

	Dim db As NotesDatabase

	Dim col As NotesDocumentCollection

	Dim doc As NotesDocument


	Dim myitem As Variant

	Dim index As Integer



	Set db = ss.CurrentDatabase

	Set col = db.UnprocessedDocuments

	Set doc = col.GetFirstDocument


	index = 0 


	While Not( doc Is Nothing )

		Set myitem = doc.GetFirstItem( "Body" )


		If ( myitem.Type = RICHTEXT ) Then

			Forall v In myitem.EmbeddedObjects

				index = index + 1

				Call v.ExtractFile( FILE_PATH & v.Name )


			End Forall

		End If


		Set doc = col.GetNextDocument( doc )




End Sub
