Help with email function I'm creating.

10 posts in this topic

Hey Everyone!

I was curious if anyone had experience with signatures in emails.  It looks like I need to find a way to include default signature on my email.  I think my body is wiping it out.

Is it possible to add a signature to the end of my $f_body to be able to include? Wasn't sure if I could pull that off.  I did take a look through the OutlookEX udf and was trying to make my own that has a lot more going on.  I'm automating a bunch of shipment information to multiple addressed with info that only applies to them.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Func CreateOutlookMailItem($f_subject, $f_body, $f_recipient)
    Local $olMailItem    = 0
    Local $olFormatRichText = 3
    Local $olImportanceLow   = 0
    Local $olImportanceNormal= 1
    Local $olImportanceHigh  = 2

    $oOApp = ObjCreate("Outlook.Application")
    $oOMail = $oOApp.CreateItem($olMailItem)

    With $oOMail
        .To = ($f_recipient)
        .Subject = $f_subject
        .BodyFormat =  $olFormatRichText
        .Importance = $olImportanceNormal
        .Body = $f_body
        .Display
        ;.Send
    EndWith
EndFunc

You can easily do what you want with my OutlookEX UDF.

The signature is added as soon as the mail item is created.

So to insert your mail body and preserve the signature you need to read the body (only including the signature at the moment), add the mailbody at the top of the retrieved text and then write the whole body to the mail item.

Hey Water!

When I download do I just put the OutlookEX and OutlookEXConstants in the include folder where autoit is installed to  call #include <OutlookEX.au3> ?

Also do I need to use _OL_MailSignatureGet and then _OL_MailSignatureSet ?  I wasn't sure if I was overlooking a function to create an email that creates with parameters and already does this?

Thanks again!

I suggest to create a custon include directory by using the SciTEConfig tool. Copy boths files into this directory.

If you have manually created and activated a signature those functions are not needed. Do you get a signature when you manually create a new mail?

I'll check out the SciTEconfig tool I haven't used that yet.

I do get my signature to come up when I create a new mail with the function I posted above.  When I set the body it's overwritten.

What functions do you suggest are the easiest to accomplish this task?

Thanks!

dar100111,

I recommend reading the Adding UDFs to AutoIt and SciTE tutorial in the Wiki before you start creating your personal include folder - lots of good info in there. ;)

Nice that will be good actually.  I've created a bunch of custom functions for our operating system and it will be nice to just add them in to call them.  Thanks for that M23!

$oItem = _OL_ItemCreate(...) ; Create the mail item including signature
$sOriginalBody = $oItem.Body ; If the mail is text 
$sBody = "Lines before the signature" & @CRLF & $sOriginalBody
_OL_ItemModify($oOutlook, $oItem, Default, "Body=" & $sBody")

When the mail is an HTML type mail replace "Body" with "HTMLBody" and add your mail body enclosed in HTML tags.
