You can print attachments automatically as soon as you receive them by email. It only requires that there's an application installed on your computer that can handle the type of file, e.g. Word for printing *.doc files etc. - and that the printer is running, of course.
See the Select Case statement in the PrintAttachments procedure where the file types are listed. At present only Excel Workbooks (*.xls) and Word Documents (*.doc) will be printed. Add any file type you need. To be able to print an attachment, it must first be saved as a file. In this sample the directory 'D:Attachments' is used, which must exist already.
