I know, this has probably been discussed a lot, but up to now I have not been able to find an easy solution for extracting mail attachments from Mail (latest version on Mountain Lion) and save them to a specific folder (In this case the Dropbox/Attachments folder in my home directory). I tried Automator which can extract the attachments but can't, link to mail rules. Mail rules of course can't extract attachments and I even tried Applescript to accomplish this or to make the Automator workflow run but it didn't work. What exactly am I trying to do: I want to extract mail attachments from newly arrived mails with a certain subject (!Dropbox!) and save them to my attachments folder within the Dropbox folder. This should happen automatically as soon as new mail arrives. Is anyone, with a bit of patience and pedagogic skills, able to guide me step by step through this? Of course I'm totally new to Applescript though I have some little experience with mail rules and even Automator. Thanks!!
