    Hello hadhazi1,

    One way is to select a range of emails and control drag them into a dos folder wherer they will be saved as messages but if you want to save the attachments themselves then that will will require some VBA.

    I ended up downloading a program call "EZdetach" that has a good trial but I went ahead and paid for it anyway.  Worked great!
