Requesting Guidance To Get Attachment - OutlookEx

Recommended Posts

Gowrisankar

Dear members,

I'm trying to get the attachments from mails using OutlookEx UDF and then save them in a particular location.

The UDF considers even the signature images and other images in the mail body as attachments, and saves it in the folder I point. I want only the proper attachment documents to be saved.

Requesting the guidance of the forum members.

 

 

Thanks and regards,

Gowrisankar R.

Is it obvious or do you still need help?

You mean I should have used "_OL_ItemAttachmentSave" ?

I tried that as well. 

$aOL_Item2 = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, $sSourceFolder1, $olMail, "", "", "", "EntryID", "", 1)
   If $aOL_Item2[0][0] = 0 Then Exit MsgBox(16, "OutlookEX UDF", "Could not find a mail item in folder '" & $sSourceFolder1 & "'. @error = " & @error)
   
   $aResult = _OL_ItemAttachmentGet($oOutlook, $aOL_Item2[1][0], Default)
   $sAttachmentFolder1 = "C:\"

   _ArrayDisplay($aResult, "D")

   DirCreate($sAttachmentFolder1)

   Local $iRowsE = UBound($aResult, $UBOUND_ROWS)
   ;_OL_ItemSave($oOutlook, $aOL_Item2[$iD][0], Default, $sAttachmentFolder1, $olHTML, 2 + 16)
   For $iE = 1 To $iRowsE - 1 Step 1
      _OL_ItemAttachmentSave($oOutlook, $aOL_Item2[1][0], Default, $iE, $sAttachmentFolder1)
   Next

If you grab all attachments and save them then the result will be the same.
You need to decide for each attachment if it is something you want to save or not. Make this decision by name, type, size etc.
Because Outlook doesn't make any difference between attachments added by the user or by a signature.

      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

      Hello again everyone, I am trying to make a simple bot/AI to help me at work. I need it to read the subject line of emails, open them if a certain subject line is found, and then copy the contents of the said email and paste it in a different program. 
      Can the Autoit outlook UDF help me achieve this? 
      Also, I have tried the Outlook UDF and so far I have only figured out how to find all the unread emails (thanks to one of water's example scripts. @water you are a genius just saying).
      I am very new to this UDF and would love any help that would guide me into making this bot/AI a reality at work.
