new email received

I have code to take the attachment from the email and saves it into a folder.
How do I trigger the code to run when a new email comes in?

Public Sub StripAttachments()
Dim objOL As Outlook.Application
Dim objMsg As Object
Dim objAttachments As Outlook.Attachments
Dim objSelection As Outlook.Selection
Dim i As Long
Dim lngCount As Long
Dim strFile As String
Dim strFolder As String

On Error Resume Next

' Instantiate an Outlook Application object.
Set objOL = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
' Get the collection of selected objects.
Set objSelection = objOL.ActiveExplorer.Selection

' Get the Temp folder.
strFolder = "G:\Pools\"
If strFolder = "" Then
MsgBox "Could not get Temp folder", vbOKOnly
GoTo ExitSub
End If

' Check each selected item for attachments.
' If attachments exist, save them to the Temp
' folder and strip them from the item.
For Each objMsg In objSelection
' This code only strips attachments from mail items.
If objMsg.Class = olMail Then
' Get the Attachments collection of the item.
Set objAttachments = objMsg.Attachments
lngCount = objAttachments.Count
If lngCount > 0 Then
' We need to use a count down loop for
' removing items from a collection. Otherwise,
' the loop counter gets confused and only every
' other item is removed.
For i = lngCount To 1 Step -1
' Save attachment before deleting from item.
' Get the file name.
strFile = objAttachments.Item(i).FileName
' Combine with the path to the Temp folder.
strFile = strFolder & strFile
' Save the attachment as a file.
objAttachments.Item(i).SaveAsFile strFile
' Delete the attachment.
objAttachments.Item(i).Delete
Next i
End If
objMsg.Save
End If
Next

ExitSub:
Set objAttachments = Nothing
Set objMsg = Nothing
Set objSelection = Nothing
Set objOL = Nothing
End Sub

Public Sub StripAttachments(msg As MailItem)

I needed the msg as MailItem. I have a little issue. How do I get it to
select the new email?

You can handle either the NameSpace.NewMail() or .NewMailEx() events or the
Items.ItemAdd() event on the Inbox folder. Search for the ZapHTML code at
www.outlookcode.com for an example of how ItemAdd() works, there should also
be a number of NewMail() and NewMailEx() handlers shown there.
