Customised Auto Reply to Specific Mails
Posted on 2004-08-18
I am looking for a solution to auto reply to a message with a customised form. We are not running Exchange Server and are using Outlook as a stand-alone email client.
We recieve queries via email that I would like to be able to reply to with a questionnaire (with drop down tables) if possible. The addin would search the incoming mail for specific text and then reply with the HTML questionnaire.
For instance, if we receive a mail such as
Title : Mr
First Name : John
Last Name : Doe
Age : 01/01/01
The addin/macro/solution should search for
so we know that we are replying to the correct mail and then send a
message such as
Dear Mr Doe,
^^^^^^^<- Cribbed from email
Thank you for you enquiry .... yadda yadda yadda please find following
And then the standard questionnaire template.
I do have basic VB experience so I think I could tailor a sample
script to fit my purposes if I could find a base to start with. I will also want to put some other customisation options in the code (i.e checking that first letter of surname is a capital, error checking that all fields are completed in the incoming email etc etc)
Many thanks in advance
