If you use the Get Received Items Basic, Advanced, or Expert actions, on the standard Outlook VBO, to retrieve the messages you're interested in, the returned Collection will include a field titles Attachments. That field will consist of a pipe (|) delimited list of any attachments on the the specific message. However, any embedded graphics in the message (ex. company logo) will be returned as attachments too. So you just need to implement some logic to check for the particular file types you're expecting (ex. .pdf).
