Outlook automation in a Shared mailbox - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

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.

The value of @error and @extended after _OL_ItemMove should shed some light onto the subject.

@error 4 stands for: Specified folder could not be found.

Can you please post the _OL_ItemMove statement you run?

_OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId1, Default, $sDestinationFolder)

(Example : $sDestinationFolder = "abc.xyz@abc.com\Inbox\Central")

The folder is present in mailbox and I've even checked the spellings, extra punctuation, spaces etc., and everything is correct.

Can you please test to access the Folder using _OL_FolderAccess?
@error and @extended will then give better error Information.

@water, I tried _OL_FolderAccess and got the following. @error = 4 ; @extended = 3

As in the example, "abc.xyz@abc.com\Inbox\Central" the @extended denotes that error is in accessing the folder "Central".

Can you please post the full line where you call _OL_FolderAccess (means: Do you set parameters $iFolderType or $iItemType?).

@water, I dont' call _OL_FolderAccess.

I use item move statement as below.

_OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId1, Default, $sDestinationFolder)

I presume _OL_FolderAccess is called from _OL_ItemMove.

This is the code I use for Folder access... please ignore the previous response. I mistook it.

Global $aFolder = _OL_FolderAccess($oOutlook, "abc.xyz@abc.com\Inbox\Central")

Global $aFolderDisplay[6][2] = [[$aFolder[0]],["","Folder object"],["","Default item type for the folder"],["", "StoreID where the folder resides"],["", "EntryID of the folder"],["", "Folder path"]]

$aFolderDisplay[1][0] = $aFolder[1]

$aFolderDisplay[2][0] = $aFolder[2]

$aFolderDisplay[3][0] = $aFolder[3]

$aFolderDisplay[4][0] = $aFolder[4]

$aFolderDisplay[5][0] = $aFolder[5]

_ArrayDisplay($aFolderDisplay, "Folder successfully accessed.")

OK, let's strip it down as far as possible:

Global $aFolder = _OL_FolderAccess($oOutlook, "abc.xyz@abc.com\Inbox")
ConsoleWrite("Inbox: @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended & @CRLF)
Global $aFolder = _OL_FolderAccess($oOutlook, "abc.xyz@abc.com\Inbox\Central")
ConsoleWrite("Inbox\Central: @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended & @CRLF)

Please post the output of the SciTE console pane.

I'll get back to you after 3-4 hours @water. Thanks for your support.

Do you run your script or mine?
My script does not show a "pop up".

If you run my script then the message you posted tells us that accessing the Inbox does not work. Because when there is a problem with "Central" the message would tell "Inbox\Central" not just "Inbox".

Please run my 4-line-script and post the exact output (all lines) you get from SciTE.

@water, the problem is within a client machine and they don't have AutoIt installed. So I shared 2 exe files one for "Inbox" and one for "Inbox\Central" with array display for positive results and message box with @error and @extended for negative results.

That is how I got the result as @error = 4, @extended = 3

Does the client machine have a different language setup?
I have a german setup and hence my directory structure would be named "abc.xyz@abc.com\Posteingang\Central"

Can you try to access the Inbox\Central folder on your machine?
If it works we know it is related to a single/few computers. If it doesn't work at all we know it is a global problem.

      Extensive library to control and manipulate Microsoft Outlook. This UDF holds the functions to automate items (folders, mails, contacts ...) in the background. Can be seen like an API.

      For a specific requirement the outbound email are managed by an on-prem EDGE server. The EDGE re-write the local on-prem email address with another domain [exposed domain - mx record-]. Everything is working fine but we are having an issue when the internal local users are requesting an invite meeting by  Outlook calendar . In that case when the receiver accept the request invite it generate an error "domain not found". In this scenario the EDGE server is not able to rewrite also the calendar MIME request  (V-card) header inside the message so when the receiver accepts the request the reply [mechanism] will fails as will be used the email address of the local user  [domain not exposed ] and not the external one.
      I was wondering if Autoit is able to manipulate somehow the invite heade- calendar MIME (V-card))- re-witing the user email.   Thanks

      Excel VBA's IDE registers a Control-y as "cut this line of code".
      For those prone to Undo/Redo (Ctrl+Z/Ctrl+Y) you may find frustration when your code in the editor does not redo, but in fact clears your active line of code while killing redo history.
      Though not perfect, I keep this tool running in background on startup.
      The purpose is to allow Cltr+Y to act normally throughout Windows and Office and only interact *differently* with the "Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications" window that is active.
      If the Standard Menu bar exists, it'll try to click the ReDo (Blue Arrow to the right), else "Alt+e, r" keystrokes (less desired).
       
      Here's the code:
      Opt('MustDeclareVars', 1) Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 1) HotKeySet("^y", "TriggerRedo") While 1 Sleep(10) WEnd Func TriggerRedo() ConsoleWrite("TriggerRedo()" & @CRLF) Local $title = "Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications - " Local $hWnd If WinExists($title) And WinActive($title) Then ;~ Parent Window Handle $hWnd = WinGetHandle($title) Local $aWindowPos = WinGetPos($hWnd) ;~ Control Bar Handle, Position and If Visible Local $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBar; TEXT:Standard;]" Local $hStandardBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) Local $bIsVisible = ControlCommand($hWnd, "", $sControlID, "IsVisible") If $hStandardBar And $bIsVisible Then ConsoleWrite("Using Mouse Click." & @CRLF) ;~ Determine Redo button location on visible Control Bar Local $aBarPos = ControlGetPos($hWnd, "", $sControlID) Local $mX = $aWindowPos[0] + $aBarPos[0] + 217 + Int(23/2) Local $mY = $aWindowPos[1] + $aBarPos[1] + 27 + Int(22/2) MouseClick("Left", $mX, $mY, 1, 0) Else ConsoleWrite("Using VBA Send Keys." & @CRLF) $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBar; TEXT:Menu Bar;]" Local $hMenuBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) ControlSend($hWnd, "", $hMenuBar, "!e") ;~ Send("r") $sControlID = "[CLASS:MsoCommandBarPopup; TEXT:Edit;]" Local $hPopupBar = ControlGetHandle($hWnd, "", $sControlID) ControlSend($hWnd, "", $hPopupBar, "r") EndIf Else ConsoleWrite("Using NATIVE Send Keys." & @CRLF) HotKeySet("^y") Send("^y") ;~ may cause "yyy..." when held HotKeySet("^y", "TriggerRedo") EndIf EndFunc ;==>TriggerRedo Hope this inspires someone.

      Hi,
      I am trying to print items from Outlook in a Citrix machine. I am printing the items into PDF files using ‘Microsoft Print to PDF option’. I am using OutlookEX.au3 for printing items.
      Everything is working fine except handling the ‘Save Print Output As’ dialog appearing while trying to print the file to PDF.
      I have set the default printer to ‘Microsoft Print to PDF’ from the control panel ( Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers) and using the following method to print the item.
      _OL_ItemPrint($oOutlook, $OL_Item) ;print item I am not able to handle the ‘Save Print Output As’ dialog initiated by the print statement in the Citrix machine. The WinActive method always returns false. I have tried with ControlSetText, ControlClick and Send methods also.
      Can anyone please help?
      Func _SavePDF($sFilePath) WinActivate ( "Save Print Output As", "") WinWaitActive ( "Save Print Output As", "",5 ) If WinActive("Save Print Output As") Then sleep(500) Send($sFilePath) sleep(500) Send("{ENTER}") sleep(500) EndIf EndFunc;=>_SavePDF

      I just noticed that Outlook does not allow to import iCal events programmatically.
      I might implement some of the iCalendar data format (RFC 5545) if someone is interested
