Default How to Copy/Save Email Attachments in OE6

Hi troops,

Guess this question has been on the cooker before but can't find it.

An Email lives in a ".dbx" folder. An attachment forms part of an Email in an encoded format.

Using VB6 or VBS, how does one get at the attachment, decode it (if say it is a Base64) and, using the given submitted File name, copy it to a HDD Folder.

I only use Outlook Express. Outlook proper allows one to make a reference to its DLL. Outlook Express is apparnetly a no-go area.

I would appreciate any pointers or suggestions.

Outlook express has NO object model so you cannot get to the message store programmatically.

Yes, but can we get the message details from DBX file by File data parsing?
