How can I save email attachment on its arrival in Thunderbird and save it to specific folder - by some rule of sender or subject of the email automatically?

This can be done with a Thunderbird extension. I would check to see if one exists already. – Ramhound Feb 27 '13 at 12:43

Check out the Thunderbird extension AttachmentExtractor. I was looking for something similar and this seems to do the trick.
