' You'll need to set macro security to warn before enabling macros or
' sign the macro. You can change the folder name or path where the attachments
' are saved by editing the code.
' 0.3- Fixed extraction bug (the previous version of the script can extract only "pdf" files, case sensitive!).
' 0.2- I prepend SentOn (Date) to attachments, to solve the problem of the attachments with the same file name. Fixed extraction bug (now it works only for PDF files).
