The Email2DB processes actions in the following order:

- Fields are extracted from incoming email.
- Attachments saved to local drive (and optionally renamed)
- Custom Action script is executed
- Database updated.
- CSV file updated.
- Outlook contacts updated.
- CRM Items updated.
- Custom reports created and exported to PDF, HTML, Rich text, Text, TIFF. Then printed.
- Email Printed.
- Fax Sent.
- Web form posted to.
- External EXE or process executed.
- Service contolled.
- Outgoing emails sent.
- Scheduled emails added to pending database.
- Popup message displayed.
- Machine Shutdown / Logged Off / Restarted.

The actions that are actually performed depend on your trigger settings - but they will always execute in the above order.

Caveat :-

If you are pulling from Outlook, then the attachment save process starts at step two, but is an asynchronous operation - it is performed by Outlook itself - so if you need these attachments before your script execution, make sure you check that they have been saved in your script.
