Take a look at this EE article showing how to do that with VBA on a bulk of mails.  Outlook Attachment Remove Add-In ( has been used by me in the past.

Hi Qlemo

This is all MS Office dependent, I was hoping for a small program that can login to mailbox every few minutes, download files from mail box and save specific file formats in a network folder.

I am afraid that there are no free lunch for you.

There is a paid tool called Hexamail POP3 Downloader which supports Extraction and output of attachments.
