Hi all,

I'm new to developing for Office and Outlook (I come from a Lotus Notes

developing environment).

I have some generic email inboxes that different clients would use to send

their attachments to. What I need is to find a way to write a script/macro

that would perform saving of the attachments on all new incoming emails.

I found a sample code that I could use to get what I want:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms268754.aspx

My question is... Can this code run on the server side for the generic

emails (there are 6 of them) that I want it on, or do all 6 client inboxes

need to be running in order for this to work?

Does this involve Exchange server?

Outlook is not suitable for running in a service or unattended. It's not

supported for that. For server side things like that you would really be

better off using an Exchange programming technique such as EWS or WebDAV or

whatever depending on your Exchange version, or Extended MAPI code, or a

MAPI wrapper library such as Redemption (www.dimastr.com/redemption), or

even server-side CDO (again depending on an Exchange version).

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your response.

Actually, we are accessing Outlook in a Cloud environment and thus is not

hosted by our company. I guess i will have to get in touch with the company

that is hosting this then?

I would, and see what they make available to you for that sort of thing.
