Currently I have an Applescript that saves a mail attachment to my Desktop. I would like to change it to save to a a PC on my network. Not really sure how to change it.

The PC shows up in Finder under shared and the server shows as

smb://shipping/SharedDocs/

Code:
on perform_mail_action(theData)
	
	set theOutputFolder to "Macintosh HD:Desktop"
So I would like to change theOutputFolder to the shipping/SharedDocs/

I am not really sure how to do this and any assistance would be much appreciated.

The easy way is to find the name of that folder is to select the PC folder in the Finder, then run the following script:
Code:
tell app "Finder"
	(selection as alias)
end
The result will be the folder location. Copy and paste that into your script.

Now how do I replace the existing file

I need this script to replace the existing saved attachment

My original code to save is
Code:
save theAttachment in theSavePath
I tried

Code:
save theAttachment in theSavePath with replacing
This did not work, but just need to overwrite existing file
