Removing Attachment from Email

Postby ADP_MAN » Fri Mar 10, 2017 9:14 pm

Hi All,

I am running a Win 7 Enterprise machine, with MS Office 2013. I am looking to run a script that monitors a specific email folder in Outlook, waits for emails to hit the folder, then saves the attachment on the email to a specific folder on the network.

Is this possible without using VB?

Thanks,
ADP

Hi ADP,

You could get away with out VB scripts with example below. NOTE: you will need to create your own error handles and define the folder names to look for. Working for me so far.
PS: Am running W7 enterprise with MS outlook 2010

Code: Select all
Let>n=0
Let>i=0
Let>dirAtt=C:\Temp\att\
Repeat>i
  Add>i,1
  Let>appTitle=Outlook
  '--------------------------------
  'Click Object Tab Send / Receive
  '--------------------------------
  Let>appTitle=Outlook
  GoSub>Get_AppName
  GoSub>Get_WinHandle
  SetFocus>%hWndResult%
  UIClick>%hWndResult%,{"Send / Receive"}
  Wait>0.5
  WaitReady>0

  '-----------------------------------------------
  'Click Object Button Send / Receive All Folders
  '-----------------------------------------------
  GoSub>Get_AppName
  GoSub>Get_WinHandle
  UIClick>%hWndResult%,{"Send/Receive All Folders"}
  WaitReady>0

  '-----------------------------------------------
  'Select Object Folder named Test
  'Define your folder name here
  '-----------------------------------------------
  GoSub>Get_AppName
  GoSub>Get_WinHandle
  UISelect>%hWndResult%,{"Folders"}
  WaitReady>0

  '-----------------------------------------------
  'Select Object Folder named Test
  '**Define your folder name here**
  '-----------------------------------------------
  GoSub>Get_AppName
  GoSub>Get_WinHandle
  UISelect>%hWndResult%,{"Test"}
  WaitReady>0

  '-----------------------------------------------

  '-----------------------------------------------
  GoSub>Get_AppName
  GoSub>Get_WinHandle
  Let>ObjName=SUPERGRID
  Let>ObjIndex=2

  GoSub>Get_WindowObjectVars
