    How can I rename mail attachments using the subject line of the email as part of the name. I have filtered the emails to a specific folder and crated an automator action to extract the attachment and move it to another folder then rename them but automator only allows date, time, sequential numbering, text, and or ??

    Is there an automator way of renaming the attachments using the subject line as part of the attachments new name.? or is there a script somewhere I can use to do this.

    I have OX 10.8.4 - and all software is up to date.
    Thank you,
    Jerry :)

    AppleScript can interface with Automator to perform custom renaming jobs such as this one, so you can integrate the script with the rest of your workflow. ;)
