I no longer have access to public folders to prove but try

ns.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders).folders("inbox")
or less likely
ns.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders)

Thanks for your advice.
In fact I tried and with the code it works well  
Set Inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olPublicFoldersAllPublicFolders).Folders("ttci expeditor")
but while I changed to
Set Inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olMailbox621IndustrialSupplyPO).Folders("PO_FROM_JDE")
Its give me error "Could not complete the operation.One or more parameter values are not valid.
Please advice how to fix and copy the attached file from the mailbox folder PO_FROM_JDE").
Thanks in advance for your prompt reply.

Are ypou saying you have a PST:

olMailbox621IndustrialSupplyPO

if so then try:

application.Session.Folders("olMailbox621IndustrialSupplyPO").Folders("PO_FROM_JDE")

Use whatever the PST is displayed as in the outlook explorer ... but any subfolder path has to be broken down with the folder syntax for each level.

application.Session.Folders("olMailbox621IndustrialSupplyPO").Folders("PO_FROM_JDE").folders("anotherlevel").folders("Yet another level")

In that case try:

Set Inbox = Application.Session.Folders("621 Industrial Supply PO").Folders("PO_FROM_JDE")
instead of
Set Inbox = Application.Session.Folders("olMailbox621IndustrialSupplyPO").Folders("PO_FROM_JDE")

If it still doesn't work then in the outlook explorer window select the root folder for the PST then select the VBE immediate window, (alt F11 followed by ctrl G) and in there type:

?application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder.Name

And let me know what it returns

In outlook itself you are trying to get the folder : mailbox- 621 Industrial Supply PO.

Select that folder then in the VBE do the other bits and return the output here as a paste of the text.
