Hello,

My name is Jeremy and I'm trying to make an addin in outlook 2007 to be able to save selected attachment directly in a specific folder. I've tried a lot of stuff but I'm only able to save all attachments from selected mail (see code below). I would like to save only the attachment I've selected...

Do you have any idea?

Many thanks.

Jerem
private void button4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Outlook.Explorer currExplorer = App.ActiveExplorer();
            Outlook.MAPIFolder folder = App.ActiveExplorer().CurrentFolder;
            Outlook.Items inBoxItems = folder.Items;
            Outlook.MailItem item = null;
 
            try
            {
                Outlook.Selection selections = currExplorer.Selection;
                for (int i = 1; i == selections.Count; ++i)
                {
                    object newEmail = (object)selections[i];
                    if (newEmail != null && (newEmail is Outlook.MailItem))
                    {
                        item = (Outlook.MailItem)newEmail;
                        if (item.Attachments.Count > 0)
                        {
                            for (int j = 1; j <= item.Attachments.Count; j++)
                            {
                                item.Attachments[j].SaveAsFile(@"C:\TestFileSave\" +item.Attachments[j].FileName);
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                string errorInfo = (string)ex.Message.Substring(0, 11);
                if (errorInfo == "Cannot save")
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Please create destination folder");
                }
            }
        }

Jeremy,
You could develop a form which would show all the attachements in a list to the user. The user can then select which one to save. You can not determine the selected attachement from Outlook.

Thanks,

Jeremy

I have created a similar list view, but I would like to display the size of each attachment in the listview. Can this be done without saving the attachments?
