|OLKeeper reliably prevents users from closing their Outlook window and thus possibly missing reminders or e-mails.
This example saves all attachments of the selected items to the harddisk. The path assigned to the Path variable must yet exist. The macro automatically creates a subfolder in that directory named with the current date. Eventually the Windows file explorer will be opened with that new directory.
