Select one or more messages with Word documents attached and click the
EZDetach Outlook toolbar button.
In the EZDetach "Save Attachments" dialog, check
"Detach only if attachment name contains..." and type "doc"
(without quotes) in the field next to it.
Check the "Execute" checkbox and put c:\doc2rtf.vbs in the field next to it.
Click "Open Folder" to open the destination folder.
Click "Save Now"
That's it. You should see the saved files in the destination folder.
For example, if an attachment is called resume.doc, the
converted text file will be called resume.doc.rtf.
You can also follow the above steps to create Rule Wizard rules with EZDetach
to automatically convert attachments in incoming messages.
See EZDetach User Guide for more information
on creating rules with EZDetach.
Note: doc2rtf.vbs script we provide is very simple, just to
illustrate the approach. It can be made more robust/feature full
to fit your needs.
