User receives a lot of project PDFs he needs to save out of Outlook to a network share for everyone to access.

Is there a way to automate this process?
 I've had a look at the Outlook rules and haven't had any luck (might also involve third party software).
Thanks

I would say set a rule to move these files to a folder, then create a VB script to save all contents to the share and then delete the items from Outlook.

I dont know much about scripting to be honest, isnt there a alternative to this. A easier method using a 3rd party software or add-ins for outlook itself?

Here is code provided to batch print files to PDF. It is not 100% automated, but easy and free and ready to be used.

I would have preferred a free addon still, but thanks, I found this already, so I guess there is no other alternative, I have to buy this.
