Auto Print Email Attachments as they arrive in my inbox, Outlook 2016

Last Modified: 2020-01-18
I have a group of outsourced workers that work for me from India.  We are wanting them to be able to send PDF documents directly to a printer in our office in the US, but.... do not want to have them connecting to our office via a VPN or anything like that.

With that being said, I am wondering if it is possible to have them email the PDF to an email address that uses Outlook 2016 and setup a script or something that would run every 30 seconds or so looking for all new emails and automatically printing any attachments, then marking the email as read and moving to another folder?

If so, can I get assistance with the code/script or any software that would do this?  In pretty bad need as this was just added to my plate and they want it ready by Monday.
Any assistance is appreciated.  Operating System is Windows 10 Pro, 64 Bit
