I have a Windows 2003 AD environment and I am looking for a script that will forward an email with zipped file attachments (or just the attachment) to a network folder. Any assistance is much appreciated!

What exactly do you mean with "forward to a network folder"? Copy the email as file, or mail it to a public folder in Exchange?

Where does the script get the e-mail from or does the script generate the email with the attachments (say log files) and then send it to a PF or resource mailbox?

Is it possible to automate copying an email attachment (particularly a zipped file) to network share?

You want to have a means to automatically save attachments of emails on receive to a network folder? Yes, you can write some VBA code in Outlook to do that. But AFAIK there is no integrated way to do so with Exchange.

The solution on this one seems to be exactly what you are looking for:

A rule fires the VBA code and then saves the attachment in a location of your choice...

So you would just have to change the line:
If Right(LCase(olkFile.FileName, 3)) = "csv" Then
                                 TO
If Right(LCase(olkFile.FileName, 3)) = "zip" Then

and then modify the location to save to your network location
olkFile.SaveAsFile "Z:\SavedZipFiles\" & olkFile.FileName

Reading further down in that question the line should be:
If Right(LCase(olkFile.FileName),3) = "zip" Then

So your code should be similar to the following:
Sub SaveCSVToDisk(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
    Dim olkFile As Outlook.Attachment
    For Each olkFile In Item.Attachments
        'Change the file name on the following line'
        If Right(LCase(olkFile.FileName), 3) = "zip" Then
            'Change the path the file will be saved to on the following line'
            olkFile.SaveAsFile "Z:\SavedZipFiles\" & olkFile.FileName
        End If
    Next
    Set olkFile = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window
