Print emails with nested attachments in Outlook

I've found code to print multiple emails with attachments. However, I also have a need to print out multiple emails with attachments which have attachments which have attachments which have attachments...(currently I have some up to 4 layers deep). I've downloaded MAPILab's Print Tool which seems to work OK but bombs out on these nested attachment emails.
Any code out there to help??

I presume you have emails within teh attachments and it is the emails that are nested?

You are correct!
Example: Email contains 3 email attachments...open one, it contains 4 email attachments...open one of them and it contains 3 PDFs, DOC and JPG. I need to print all of the emails and their related attachments...preferably collated.

Hmmm

I think that will involve extracting each such email back into outlook in order to process them ... would that be an issue.

As for collated ... I guess they'll print as they come?

That's what I've been doing so far, manually opening each email, printing it, then opening their respective attachments and printing them. Nothing to automate the process??

Yes it can be automated but as I say it will require each attachment to be saved in order to so:

Files into a work folder - temp folder
messages into an outlook folder

That may be doable. What did you have in mind?

Not sure yet but I would think create a folder in utlook for the extraction of emails ... and delete anything therein each time another run is made ... but need to consider how to control it though.
