Hi,

I need to be able read the content of every message in a folder - the folder will always be the same so it can be hard coded.

(I intended to dump this info to a text file - I can do this bit!)

Cheers

Rupert

Dim Messagefldr As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim itmMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim itmsMail As Outlook.Items
Dim strBody As String
   
    Call olLogon
    Set Messagefldr = MessageFldrExists()
    If Not (Messagefldr Is Nothing) Then
        Set itmsMail = Messagefldr.Items
        For Each itmMail In itmsMail
'****************
'Here is the place to put in sending strBody to a file
'****************
            strBody = itmMail.Body
        Next
    End If
    Call olLogoff
End Sub
=========
Note:
You must have a reference to Outlook object set somewhere.
