The macro posted with: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_22933400.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+attach+email+macro+outlook+print

does not print pdf attachments. In case of one email with 3 .jpg attachments, it printed one of them twice and skipped another.  I would appreciate fixes to these.  Is it possible to add a pause option after printing each email or attachment, and ask for an input to continue?

Thank you.

Hi, fl160.

Try this version.  This uses a different method to print Acrobat files and pauses after each item.
Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" _
  Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, _
  ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, _
  ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long


Sub PrintMessageAndAttachments()
    Dim olkMsg As Outlook.MailItem, _
        olkAtt As Outlook.Attachment, _
        objShell As Object, _
        strFilename As String, _
        strCommandLine As String
    
    Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    
    For Each olkMsg In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
        '--- Print the message ---'
        olkMsg.PrintOut
        '--- Print the attachments ---'
        For Each olkAtt In olkMsg.Attachments
            strFilename = Environ("Temp") & "\" & olkAtt.FileName
            olkAtt.SaveAsFile strFilename
            Select Case LCase(Right(olkAtt.FileName, 3))
                Case "pdf"
                    'Change the printer name on the next line'
                    strCmdLine = "AcroRd32.exe /t """ & strFilename & """ ""HP Deskjet 3320"""
                    objShell.Run strCmdLine, 0, False
                Case Else
                    ShellExecute 0&, "print", strFilename, 0&, 0&, 0&
            End Select
        Next
        If msgbox("Do you want to continue printing items?", vbQuestion + vbYesNo, "Print Message and Attachments") = vbNo Then
            Exit For
        End If
    Next
    
    'Cleanup'
    Set objShell = Nothing
    Set olkAtt = Nothing
    Set olkMsg = Nothing
End Sub
