Save selected E-mail attachment from outlook using c#

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

                {

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.

ok, thanks for your reply. I've done this. I've inserted a listview and then I take the attachment name from this list and I compare ti know wich one to save.

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?
