...or something.

I have a problem. An automated process sends me occasional emails with textfile attachments.

Mostly, I just file them, against a time when I might need to find some bit of information in one of the attachments.

Last time I needed to do this, I used Copernic -- but I don't have that available anymore.

Thing is, the attachments always have the same name.

I use The Bat! (or rather, the Voyager variant thereof.) I thought I could ask The Bat to search inside attachments, but I couldn't work out how.

So all I can do is save the attachments to disk and search them with something else.

But in order to save them to disk, I have to give each file a different name, so I don't overwrite information.

There are currently 200-odd relevant emails. I REALLY don't want to have to go through that process manually, one at a time.

Can anyone suggest an approach to this?

As far as I know, TheBat automatically stores attachments as normal files.. so you could search your normal file directory where thebat stores them with any normal search program, without having to save them manually as unique filenames.

Not Voyager -- everything's encrypted. That's usually considered a good thing... Wink
