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.

Welcome to AutoIt and the forum!

You could use _OL_ItemFind to search for the mails based on Subject and then loop throught he resulting array and call _OL_ItemPrint for each item.
For each of this functions there is an example script in the OutlookEX ZIP file.

Hi water, I tried the below code but I'm getting the  error as @error = 2

#include <OutlookEX.au3>

Global $oOutlook = _OL_Open()
Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Inbox", $olMail, "", "Subject", "Daily Process Report", "Subject", "", 1)

If IsArray($aItems) Then

   _ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Emails with expected string in Subject")
   MsgBox(0, "Information", UBound($aItems))

   If $aItems[0][0] = 0 Then
      MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemPrint Example Script", "Could not find a mail item with expected Subject")
   Else
      For $i = 1 To UBound($aItems) - 1 Step 1
         _OL_ItemPrint($oOutlook, $aItems[$i][0])
      Next
      If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemPrint Example Script", "Error printing specified note. @error = " & @error)
      MsgBox(64, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemPrint Example Script", "Note successfully printed")
   EndIf

Else
    MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended)
EndIf

 

I've attached the code and error snapshot as well. Please guide.

That's because you pass the Subject as parameter to _OL_ItemPrint. Use the EntryID instead:

Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Posteingang", $olMail, "", "Subject", "Menorca", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1)

Great water.. is there a way to open the mail before printing, so that I can choose the printer and then print?

$oOL.Session.GetItemFromID($aItems[$i][0]).Display()

should display the item.
But selecting the printer and printing only works when you do it from the displayed item. Using _OL_Itemprint always uses the default printer.

@water Is there a way to print secure mails? Using the below code I was able to open secure mails. But when I sent print command through "Send("^p")", it doesn't work.

$oOL.Session.GetItemFromID($aItems[$i][0]).Display()

@extended value is "-2147352567".

Secure mail is of 4 types as per my understanding. I created 4 types of mails and tried the code for all the types.

Of those 4 types, "Do not reply all" and "Do  not edit" are working fine.

"Do not forward" and "view only" are not working.

Never worked with "secure mails" before.
Can you manually print this mails?

So it seems to be a security feature - means: WAD (works as designed) :)

Correct. What Outlook doesn't allow to do manually istn't allowed to be automated.

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Hey all,
      Has anyone created any queries for youtube? I was thinking it might be something like this but can't quite figure it out:
      $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() _IENavigate($oIE,"https://www.youtube.com") Local $oForms = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "form") Local $sTxt = "" For $oForm In $oForms If $oForm.id = "masthead-search" Then $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input") For $oInput In $oInputs If $oInput.id = "masthead-search-term" Then _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "cards") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) EndIf Next EndIf Next

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
