    If xItem.Class = olMail Then
        Set xMailItem = xItem
        If xMailItem.Attachments.Count = 0 Then Exit Sub
        Set xAttachments = xMailItem.Attachments

I tried the multiple emails option of pasting the VBA code, but when I press F5 to run it, I get a syntax error with this line highlighted:
If xItem.Class = olMail Then

Any ideas?
