I am trying to create an outlook rule that will save attachments from a specific person to a folder on my hard drive.  Is this possible without having to create a macro?

Many Thanks

No, unfortunately this currently is only possible via a macro or 3rd party software
A suggested article with a simple tested code can be found below.

There are of course more advanced solutions around which you can locate online if desired.
One of my clients uses a plugin from Sperry software

There might be cheaper or free alternatives around for this, but I am not acquainted with those.
