AutoSave Thunderbird Email Attachments

Expert 100+

I've written code to automatically save and file email attachments in an Outlook email client. I'd like to do the same for Thunderbird but I can't find any documentation about that.

Anyone know how to manipulate create and manipulate Thunderbird objects?

Hey Jim!

You might need to find the library file associated with the application (if there is one) and point to that library in your VBA References. It should be a .olb, .tlb or .dll file.

That would be your starting point, but without documentation from the software owners, you might be fishing blind in a bathtub with no hooks or worms.....

Hope that hepps!

Twinny's on the right lines there Jim. You may not need the reference at all, but you'll certainly need some understanding of how to use their class structure properly.

Thanks for the input, fellas. I have not been able to find anything in regards to .dll or other references that help with this. It almost makes me consider changing to Outlook in order to manage my email attachments.

However, I'm still looking around.

Thanks again!

Yeah, Microsoft makes it a lot easier to stay within house than go over to the neighbors. I would think, though, because of the nature of Thunderbird, that they would have more open documentation on their apps.
