    You can create agent which will run on after new mail arrives..

    Use Add Search button to search on the subject which needs to be forwarded.

    No need of any scripting here.. just use simple actions. "Send Mail Message" for forwarding the document (Enable include copy of document).. Secondly to save add one more simple action and select "Copy To Folder"

    In Notes 6, you can write rules from the mail database to process messages automatically.
    You can access the helper dialog box through the button Inbox / Tools / Mail Rules.

    WHat I would do is just get the sender of the report to cc the other people!  If you are forwarding it without even looking, then why should you be forwarding to begin with?!

    But if you must...

    Create an agent (Menu choice: Create->Agent).

    As Hemantha says, click ADD SEARCH to specify exactly what it shoudl work for.  Usually, you want to select criteria BY FIELD, and use the SUBJECT field to identify the e-Mail by its subject line.

    And, as Hemantha also hints at, you want a "simple action" agent, and click ADD ACTION.  The action you want is Send Mail Message.  There are options there to specify the recipienets, an to copy the message body of the received message, into the new message you are sending.  No copy of the message you sent will be saved.

    I can follow some procedures here, but hte ADD SEARCH,,i cannot find it and i dont know how i do it. I can see the add action button below the screen...

    Can somebosy guide me in detials as i have not done this before.

    I want solutions that:
    search for the suject criteria to be sent and/or from a specific person whom i received the email..

    i need above solution such that one agent can be saved to a custom folder and the other agent is only for sending and not saving.

    Of course i will run and use one agent only but i just want how i do it if i suddenly want ot save the message being sent out. Because the file i am receivng then forwarding it is a littel bit big in file size.
    thanks.

    miyon654,

    If you're using Notes 6, then there is no need for an agent, because Rules are exactly what you need.
    And they're very easy to build up.

    i'm using notes 6 but i believe that rules only applies to incoming mails and these are automatically being thrown in custom folders but not able to send to other automatically.

    A Rule is made of conditions and actions.

    You can write a Rule for forwarding without saving by means of:

      1. Specify conditions:
        in [sender] [contains] write <<the sender>> and click Add
        in [subject] [contains] write <<something useful>> to identify the messages and click Add
    you'll see now a condition in the white space below like
      WHEN Sender contains ... AND Subject contains ...

      2. Specify actions:
        in [send copy to] [full] to: write <<the forwarding address>> and click Add action
        in [delete] just click Add action
    you'll see now an action in the white space below like
      send Full Copy to ... AND don't Accept Message

      3. finally click OK and your Rule will be added

    The other rule is very similar, just remember that conditions can be glued by logic, and actions are performed sequentially.

    The lower pane may be obscuring the "Add Search" button, if so move your mouse over the extruded border between the upper and lower panes, and drag it down to reveal the button.  Also this will reveal the area where you would enter your criteria as in a post above.
