Download file from link in email

5 posts in this topic

I hope some one can give me some insight on this.

We have several emails that are sent to us on a daily basis. Each email contains a link that brings up a pop up box to download the file. Currently we do this by manually. Is this something that AutoIt can do? We are running Exchange Server with Outlook Clients. Any ideas?

Use the forum's search function. There have been many posts on automating Outlook clients.

Hi,

There are many functions to do this :)

First you can try to get controlID of controls you want to use

Au3info.exe > Directory of Autoit3

You select "Control" tab and you can see all info of the control over your cursor

Use ControlSetText()

ControlSend()

ControlClick()

And many others...

Then you can hightligh link with mouse functions

MouseClickDrag()

And copy it :

Send("^C")

you can get it from clipboard :

MsgBox(0,"",ClipGet())

If you don't understand somes functions, don't forget to read helpfile :) (F1 in SciTE)

Hardware : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10Ghz / 8 GiB RAM DDR3.

My UDFs : Skype UDF | TrayIconEx UDF | GUI Panel UDF | Excel XML UDF | Is_Pressed_UDF

My Projects : YouTube Multi-downloader | FTP Easy-UP | Lock'n | WinKill | AVICapture | Skype TM | Tap Maker | ShellNew | Scriptner | Const Replacer | FT_Pocket | Chrome theme maker

My Examples : Capture toolIP Camera | Crosshair | Draw Captured Region | Picture Screensaver | Jscreenfix | Drivetemp | Picture viewer

My Snippets : Basic TCP | Systray_GetIconIndex | Intercept End task | Winpcap various | Advanced HotKeySet | Transparent Edit control

I was thinking more of the many examples of using the Outlook COM interface. Like the one by ptrex.
