  • Thank you, I think I now have a different issue. I am working off of an exchange server and company policy has disabled custom macros from being ran in outlook. Does anyone know if this setting would also effect the ability to run a script? I have set the rule to run a script when a specific e-mail comes in, I have even manually ran the rule yet it does not seem the save the attachments and I can't seem to set a break point in the script (code) to see if it is indeed working as it should.
