    hi all, i would like to use either automator or applescript to get attachments from certain emails i get in mail that have the subject line that contains "Database Backup" then according to the first part of the subject to save the attachment into a folder with that name.

    For example if there is an email with "my first Database Backup" it would get the attachment and save it into a folder called "my first"

    is this possible?

    i did find this: http://www.peachpit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1349300&seqNum=3

    not sure if this is the right route to take or not and if this can be modified to do what i would like as above?

    appreciate any help thanks
