Oulook Exchange and VB

4 posts in this topic

So I figure since I now there are VB writers on here and I am writing a Autoit Program this would work on this forum.... This is what I want to do.

I am creating an automated system to print work orders when an e-mail comes in. How can I get the e-mail to a txt file so I can then parse it. If I can get it to a txt file thats file. what would be nice is if as soon as the e-mail comes in it will auto run my program to print the work order. Please help... If I need VB to push the e-mail to txt then great otherwise please let me know how to do this.

Are you comfortable with a COM interface? There are many scripts and UDFs posted on this forum featuring Outlook. The forum search function is your friend...
