[SOLVED] how to find outlook emails that are unread and have a specific subject

Recommended Posts

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)

Thats correct, it's a partial match so you can't do what you want with _OL_ItemFind.
With function _OL_ItemSearch it's possible to search for unread mails that start with a specific string in the subject - unfortunately it is quite complex.

I suggest to use _OL_ItemFind to retrieve all unread mails, then search the returned array for all mails with the needed subject and ignore the rest.

@water thank you for the quick reply. I was able to fix the issue with a simple if statement. 

 

; Retrieve the items object
    Global $oItem = $oOutlook.Session.GetItemFromID($aItems[1][0], Default)
    $oItem.GetInspector

    Global $eBody          = $oItem.Body                        ; The Body of the email
    Global $eSenderAddress = $oItem.SenderEmailAddress          ; Customers email address
    Global $eSentOn        = $oItem.SentOn                      ; When was the email sent?
    Global $eSubject       = $oItem.Subject                     ; Subject of the email

    if $eSubject <> "Request" Then
        ChangeEmailStatus()
    EndIf
    
Func ChangeEmailStatus()

    ;*******************************************************************************
    ; changes the status of an email from Unread to Read
    ;*******************************************************************************
    ConsoleWrite("Current email has been changed from Unread to Read." & @CRLF)
    _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[1][0], Default, "Unread=False")

EndFunc

I inserted an if statement to force the program to "skip" (mark as read) the emails with subjects that do not match. Thank you very much for your time.

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!
      BR,

      Am trying to automate injecting credential on the login form for all kind of Web application for IE. I know how to identify the form name by viewing the source code and using the method - _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name).
      I would like to know how to identify or get the form object for the web app where there is no form name tag for example below, for the is I have used - _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) to get the form object.
      My Question is does it work for all kind of application "_IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0)" how to identify Index value? is it always 0? is there any better solution?
      The final solution am looking for is find out form object, get the username, password field and inject credential and submit the form.
      How to find out index value? for the forms which does not have form name field.
      $login_form = _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}") OR This works fine if the form has form name. $login_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}")
