Currently I'm set up for a task where i have to create an Outlook Add-in that renames the filenames of emails which are exported to windows explorer through a simple Drag and Drop, this Add-in should only use the 3 first words of the E-mail subject + Recieving DateTime (so they remain unique so to speak) My question to you is as Follows, is this even possible, and if so, what is the expected expenditure, how far do i have to go(simple Macro, or that with a Shell extension) I'm really looking forward for your Help (All of which is deeply Appreciated) Thank You

There is no difference between export data to Excel and export data to folder. Use MailItem object (as i suggest you) and SaveAs[^] method to save your email as a file with defined name. That's all. Try to do something and call again, OK? Use "Improve question" widget to update you question.
