I found a script that would automatically save certain attachments to a specified folder on receipt of the email. The first day it worked well. The next day it would not work at all. Someone online found that if he deleted "Outlook\VbaProject.OTM" and started over rewriting the script and the rule, everything would work again. I tried this and it worked... for that day. The next day I had the same issue.

The whole point of what I am trying to do is to facilitate work flow. There has to be a better solution than rewriting the code and rule every morning. Does anyone have thoughts on this?

It is still doing the same thing. I do not understand why the program cannot remember that this procedure needs to happen every single day. I would prefer if I was able to make a rule that says if I receive an email from this trusted sender, save attachment to so and so folder. It makes me use the "run a script' feature which would be okay if it would remember to keep running it until I say stop

Does anyone read these?

Problem seemed to solve itself as mysteriously as it appeared.
