Hi Experts ,

I have a  Independent folder in Outlook named "Test" .
I have macro whose work is to get the attachment from "Test" folder emails and save at"EmailAttachments" folder in "MyDocuments"

So the program is working when I manually run the macro , So I need your help to set some program which can run this macro automatically .
The program should run when new email comes in "Test" folder only otherwise if it will check inbox and all outlook then it will be performance issue.

I am using below code in "ThisOutlookSession" but it is checking all incoming emails in outlook , just need to check "Test" folder only.

Private Sub Application_NewMail()
    Call SaveAttachments
End Sub 

Open in new window



Also "Run as Script" is not available.


Appreciate any help in this regard.

How are the emails getting into the test folder? Is it with a rule?
You can utilize the same rule to run a script.
