Extract Attachment


I have a system service email account, "SystemAdmin@abc.com.sg" that will regularly receive file attachments through email. I need advise on how I can automatically extract the attachments from the email and place them into a particular folder.

Can advise the options that I have with preferably a tool or program that can run off from another server and not at the exchange server.

You could write a macro for Outlook to do this.


or Purchase a program like EEAttachments for around 50 dollars

I am not looking at Outlook macros because it requires Outlook client. I'm looking at server side automation and there is a limitation in that I cannot place this at the same server as the Exchange.

EEAttachments looks interesting though!

Thx aobrein32. The latest suggestion is a macro/addon for Outlook client.

I need something to work like EEAttachments which is a service account that watches the files without at the back without any interface, so that it is even capturing the attachments even the windows is locked.

Do you know if there are similar tools like EEAttachments?

From my last link above, at the bottom of the page is a python script from a french guy, here is the link. Just translate the page into English first but i think it will accomplish what you need to do


Another Product that will do it as well but manually is digiscope.
