Hi,

I have the following code below that allows me to save all the attachments

from my own Inbox.

Sub GetAttachments()

On Error GoTo GetAttachments_err

Dim ns As NameSpace

Dim Inbox As MAPIFolder

Dim SubFolder As MAPIFolder

Dim Item As Object

Dim Atmt As Attachment

Dim FileName As String

Dim i As Integer

Set ns = GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set Inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)

i = 0

If Inbox.Items.Count = 0 Then

MsgBox "There are no messages in the Inbox!", vbInformation, "Nothing

Found"

Exit Sub

End If

For Each Item In Inbox.Items

For Each Atmt In Item.Attachments

FileName = "C:\Documents and

Settings\earpn\Desktop\Developments\Attachments\" & Atmt.FileName

Atmt.SaveAsFile FileName

i = i + 1

Next Atmt

Next Item

If i > 0 Then

MsgBox "I found " & i & " attached files." _

& vbCrLf & "I have saved them to C:\Documents and

Settings\earpn\Desktop\Developments\Attachments." _

& vbCrLf, vbInformation, "Finished!"

Else

MsgBox "I didn't find any attached files in your mail.", vbInformation,

"Finished!"

End If

GetAttachments_exit:

Set Atmt = Nothing

Set Item = Nothing

Set ns = Nothing

Exit Sub

GetAttachments_err:

MsgBox "An unexpected error has occurred." _

& vbCrLf & "Please note and report the following information." _

& vbCrLf & "Macro Name: GetAttachments" _

& vbCrLf & "Error Number: " & Err.Number _

& vbCrLf & "Error Description: " & Err.Description _

, vbCritical, "Error!"

Resume GetAttachments_exit

End Sub

I now need to enable this to save the attachments from a shared mailbox that

i have access too and to save them into specific folders based on the first 6

characters of the attachments file name.

Is this possible? If so does anyone have any ideas of how to do it.

Folder will be a 6 digit number

E-mail will be say aa@bb.com & it'll be that e-mails Inbox i want to access

Thanks in advance

For accessing a shared mailbox see the GetSharedDefaultFolder function. For

text parsing the functions Instr, Left, Right, and Mid are useful.

Best regards
