programaticaly? What kind of OLItemType has the Item?

I tried to access the file as follows:

Such "freedocs" will be DocumentItem objects, with the file held in the DocumentItem.Attachments collection. You must use the Attachment.SaveAsFile method to save the attachment to the local drive before you can do anything with it, e.g.:

On Error Resume Next
Set objItem = myNameSpace.Folders("Public Folders").Folders("the Folder").Items(1)
objItem.Attachments(1).SaveAsFile "C:\" & objItem.Attachments(1).FileName
