## 9 posts in this topic

The job i like to automate.

Search a directori for files.

Set them in a array.

Mail them 1 fot 1

(maybe make them smaller size)

I would like to put the name (nummber's 5 digits) in a excel file.

and search for them in a dir.

This i can do, no props.

I will post the code for this later on.

First i need to know if this jobis possible with autoit before i try.

1-can i read out a dir

2-put them in a array (if 1 goes then this would be a prop)

3-command outlook to mail them

Use _InetSmtpMail() if possible. This allows you to bypass the manual send, but you do have to have all of your email account's SMTP information available to make it work.

_InetSmtpMail() is in your help file as well.

You could also take a look at the Outlook.au3 UDF.

I tried Outlook.au3 and OutlookEX.au3.

it only works with autoit 3.9.2

and not outlook 2003 (wich i use)

GENERAL

=======

* Needs AutoIt beta version 3.3.9.2 or later because of the new COM error handling.

Will still run with earlier versions but will crash if a COM error occurres and _OL_ErrorNotify has not been called before

* _OL_Open no longer initializes a COM error handler. Has to be done by _OL_ErrorNotify

Im using portable autoit..not 3.9.2

for _InetSmtpMail() its the echange server @ my work...

I dont know where to get the info needed

If you are not the administrator of the exchange server, I would recommend getting with an administrator FIRST before doing a project that involves its use. You may be breaking corporate IT rules that can lead to your termination.

If YOU are the administrator... drop what you're doing and go learn about how exchange server works.

LoL no mate.

I just need to work somthing out to simplify some stuff.

I like to learn about scripting because it made my life easier

So if you can help me out :-)

Its because of firm policys that we can not sync 2 directorys. (firm-A to Firm-B )

If i can mail some files automaticly it would be good for both.

I dont see anny harm in that.

Hi all.  Does AutoIt have any functions/tools (either built-in or user defined) that can help me automate the process of exporting an OST mailbox to a PST file in Microsoft Outlook (2013)?
I know how to carry out the process manually.  At the Microsoft Forums, I have asked if it is possible to do the same via a script, but some have said it is not possible.  It may be possible if I was using Microsoft Exchange, but I am not.
I've seen some posts about an Outlook UDF on this site (here and here), but I don't see any mention of exporting a mailbox.
In my post at the Microsoft Forums, many paid third party applications were suggested.  But for now I would like to pursue the custom scripting route as far as I can.
The ultimate goal of this exercise is to automatically create a weekly backup of my Outlook mailbox for offline storage.

Hi all.
I am trying to do 2 things but i cannot seem to get any traction on how to read/implement this idea.
Premise: PowerPoint file in C\temp\presentation.pptx that contains on the first slide 2 entries as "<one>" and "<two>" which need to be replaced with "user1" and "user2", then a silent Outlook send mail containing the file with a predefined body and subject.
I narrowed it down to COM objects as the Office does not like intrusive open AutoIt functions. I installed OLE/COM Object Viewer to understand how to create the commands but i am still stuck. So far i am trying to user water's code but i suck
COM object i was originally trying to modify
Dim $oPPT,$oPres $oPPT = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application")$oPPT.Visible = True $oPres =$oPPT.Presentations.Read Water's code below (0.1% modified)
#include <File.au3> #include "PowerPoint.au3" #include <misc.au3> Global $sFile = "C:\temp\presentation.pptx" Global$sString2Search = "<username>", $sString2Replace = "Password",$iReplaceOnce = 1, $sFullLogFile = "C:\temp\pptxlog.txt" _ProcessPpt($sFile) Func _ProcessPpt($sFile)$oApp = _PPT_PowerPointApp() Local $bChange = False Local$oInterface = $oApp.Presentations Local$oPresentation = $oInterface.Open($sFile, False, False, False) If @error Then _FileWriteLog($sFullLogFile, "E Error " & @error & " opening File " &$sFile) Return SetError(1, 0, 0) EndIf ;it does not even open my file and from here not sure how to read the text and replace it EndFunc ;==>_ProcessPpt

Dear members of the forum,
I'm new to AutoIt and I'm having a good time exploring and enjoying the features of AutoIt.
For one of my tasks, I've to open few particular mails from outlook based on subject of the mails and then print the mails. Can someone please guide me how to do it?
My question could be very silly for experts. But I'm just a beginner. Kindly advice.
Thanks and regards,
Gowrisankar R.

Anyony interested in a function to retrieve the Outlook mailbox quotas for Exchange mailboxes?
If yes, then this function could be added to the OutlookEX UDF.
Result could look like (will later be returned in an array):
