    Please find the following code snippet for retrieving various Outlook attachments  - Reference, Value, Embedded and OLE using Outlook Object Model (OOM) & VBA:

    'Code Snippet : How to retrieve Outlook attachments using Visual Basic for Application (VBA)
    Dim omailitem As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim oattach As Outlook.Attachment
    Dim ofolder As Outlook.Folder
     
    Set ofolder = Application.Session.PickFolder
    Debug.Print "Total Items available in Folder : " & ofolder.Items.Count
     
    For Each Item In ofolder.Items
    Set omailitem = Item
    Debug.Print "Item Subject :" & omailitem.Subject & " Size (in bytes):" & omailitem.Size
    If omailitem.Attachments.Count > 0 Then
     
    For Each oattach In omailitem.Attachments
    If oattach.Type = Outlook.olByReference Then
    Debug.Print "By reference : " & oattach.FileName & " Size (in bytes) : " & oattach.Size
    ElseIf oattach.Type = Outlook.olByValue Then
    Debug.Print "By Value : " & oattach.FileName & " Size (in bytes) : " & oattach.Size
    ElseIf oattach.Type = Outlook.olEmbeddeditem Then
    Debug.Print "Embedded item : " & oattach.FileName & " Size (in bytes) : " & oattach.Size
    ElseIf oattach.Type = Outlook.olOLE Then
    Debug.Print "OLE : " & oattach.FileName & " Size (in bytes) :" & oattach.Size
    End If
    Debug.Print "-------------------"
    Next
    End If
    Next

    Here,
    - olByReference The attachment is a shortcut to the location of the original file.
    - olByValue The attachment is a copy of the original file and can be accessed even if the original file is removed.
    - olEmbeddeditem The attachment is an Outlook message format file (.msg) and is a copy of the original message.
