Default Word attachment on an E-mail-macro to open attachment &

This is a work-related issue. One of my responsibilities is requesting information that comes back from our mainframe. The information is returned from the mainframe, via an e-mail, with the information being in a Microsoft Word file, which is the attachment on the e-mail. I already have a macro in Word that runs after I open up the Word attachment from the e-mail. This macro formats the attachment and saves it to a folder on our server for another department to print.

I have programmed in VB in Excel and Word but Outlook VB is foreign to me.

I would like to either:

1) I would like a macro in Outlook that would open up the attachment and then run the macro I have already in Word.

Even better yet, if it can be done would be:

2) All the e-mails returned from the mainframe (200+ come back) are in one Outlook folder in my Inbox. If I could hit the macro button in Outlook, and it would automatically go through all the e-mails and run the macro in Word.

Is this something that can be done. I would love to do #2 but if that's not possible, #1 would suffice.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
