Like many others, i had a problem extracting attachement from archived mail items.
The name of the attachement is "@" instead of the actual file name.
It was suggested in a particular mail to use the API, but you need EVAdmin to do so. (CreateObject("EnterpriseVault.ContentManagementAPI") failed)
Another suggestion was to read the HTMLbody of the mail and search for the filename.
After a little research, i found that, if you "Display" the mailitem, it will be accessible as any other mailitem, including the attachements.
Here's the code:

Well are you saying the actual name of attachment is "@" or you see that in shortcut/archived item. If you see this behaviour in OWA, then its due to the OWA extensions issue.
The following TechNote is useful, I think which describe your issue :
The attachment list in Microsoft Outlook shows an @ sign instead of the actual attachments for an archived item.
Hey 2D, thanks for sharing the information. I thought you require solution to this scenario.
Just FYI, If you dont need solution, then while posting it, you can select "I do not need a solution (just sharing information)"
