The sample code must be placed in a class module such as ThisOutlookSession, and the TestAttachRead() procedure should be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook. For this example to run, there has to be at least one item in the Inbox with subject as 'Test' and containing at least one attachment.

Public WithEvents myItem As outlook.MailItem 
Private Sub myItem_AttachmentRead(ByVal myAttachment As Outlook.Attachment) 
 If myAttachment.Type = olByValue Then 
 MsgBox "If you change this file, also save your changes to the original file." 
 End If 
End Sub 
Public Sub TestAttachRead() 
 Dim atts As Outlook.Attachments 
 Dim myAttachment As Outlook.Attachment 
 Set myItem = Application.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder.Items("Test") 
 Set atts = myItem.Attachments 
End Sub
