Required help to move mails to different folder

Recommended Posts

Gowrisankar

Dear members,

I'm trying to move unread mails from Inbox to a different folder using OutlookEx UDF.

But its not working for me. I'm not sure what mistake I do.

I get the error code 6 when the following is executed. From the UDF it is observed that  "No or an invalid item has been specified".

Note : The UDF version is 1.3.3.1. AutoIt version (v3.3.14.2).

#include <OutlookEX.au3>

Global $oOutlook = _OL_Open()
If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF", "Error creating a connection to Outlook. @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)

Global $aOL_Item = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Inbox", $olMail, "[UnRead]=True", "", "", "Subject", "", 1)
If $aOL_Item[0][0] = 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemMove Example Script", "Could not find a task item in folder 'Outlook-UDF-Test\SourceFolder\Tasks'. @error = " & @error)
_ArrayDisplay($aOL_Item, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script - Unread mails")
_OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $aOL_Item[1][0], Default, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test\TargetFolder\Mail")
If @error <> 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemMove Example Script", "Error moving specified task. @error = " & @error)

Any help is deeply appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks and regards,

Gowrisankar R.

I found it myself. Used "EntryID" along with "Subject".

Pointed the "EntryID" column of the array to move the mail. It worked.

 

Thanks and regards,

Sorry,

I'm having a hiccup with moving items to new folders and I'm a bit slow on the uptake this morning.

I have a nice script that runs through the inbox and creates a CSV file of the email contents (the emails are html forms that come from an external partner and need to be loaded into our CMDB). What I want it to do next is move the processed email into a time stamped folder so I can debug any issues.

I'm having a brain fart trying to think it through so please excuse anything below that is painfully obvious!

Was the error you had with this line?

_OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $aOL_Item[1][0], Default, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test\TargetFolder\Mail")

and was it resolved by changing it to this

_OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $aOL_Item[0][0], Default, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test\TargetFolder\Mail")

Or am I off track?

Thanks

David

Thanks for your response @dhardyuk. The error was in "_OL_ItemFind" statement where I used only "Subject". Since there was no unique identifier it threw an error. After changing it to "EntryId,Subject" (combination of Entry Id and Subject of the body) the error was resolved.

      Dear members of the forum,
      I'm working on a project where incoming emails are to be analyzed based on the subject line and moved to various folders in a shared mailbox.
      I'm using "OutlookEx.au3" of @water. The macro can can move emails  to any folder that I newly create. But the macro couldn't move emails to specific folders that are already existing.
      I checked the permission levels of those folders and found that nothing is wrong with that. The function I use is _OL_ItemMove.
      Please guide me how to proceed further. Thanks in advance.

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc
