Printing Attachments

Hello all!

I've been searching high and low for a way to create a rule in Entourage that would print just an attachment in an email. for instance, Agendas sent by staff etc.

I can't find one. The work around I've attempted is to have attachments sent directly to a folder on my hard drive. Now I'm searching for an Applescript that will print any "new" document that's just been added to that folder.

I can't find one. As you can see, it's driving me a bit crazy. Any ideas would be apprecieated. Thanks in advance!

'Folder Actions' FTW


You can set up an Automator workflow or Applescript as a "Folder Action" that will do just that. I've had them enabled for so long that I don't recall the specifics of setting up Folder Actions in the first place, but a quick trip to The Google should help you out there.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless
