Reading OUTLOOK EMAIL using AUTOIT V3

8 posts in this topic

I am very new to AUTOIT - is there any way of reading messages from a Microsoft Outlook INBOX using AUTOIT V3 and also deleting them once they have been read ?

Any suggestions welcome.

Well... Not sure what you mean. Do you want that autoit take email text and send it some reading program in order to listen it?

I do not use OutLook, but this may help you:

My question is much simpler - all I really want to find is examples of AutoIt V3 scripts which read Outlook (and Outlook Express) messages from the INBOX so I can filter on a string in the message subject field to choose messages with the defined string content.

Also I want to filter on a defined string in the message body. in the same way.

I then want to dump the chosen messages into another Outlook folder and delete the original message(s) in the INBOX . Do any such examples exist ?

As I said I am very new to AutoIt V3 and still getting to grips with it .

You can use the built-in Outlook rules to do so.

No need for AutoIT.

I can use the filter facility in Outlook and Outlook Express - but this does not solve my problem.

I want to filter the messages as specified but also do other things with them (calculations, writing to file, invocation of other Office programs etc) which AUTOIT V3 gives me. I may also want to change via a screen prompt the text I am filtering on (which again AUTOIT V3 is good at).

It sounds like what you want to do would be achieved the most easiest by using Outlook's built-in VBA support.
