Outlook XP Custom Rule - Extract Email Attachment From An Email
Posted on 2006-04-19
At work, I have a rule in Outlook XP that forwards certain emails as an attachment to my personal email account at home. When my personal email account (accessed via Outlook XP, also) receives this forwarded email as an attachment, I want it to “extract” the attachment and place it in my Inbox. Afterwards, I want it to delete the forwarded email leaving me with just the attached email in my Inbox.
This result in the email sent to my work email account appearing in my personal email account’s Inbox as if the original email was sent directly to my personal email. No longer will I have to deal with subject lines that start off with “FW:.” Also, when I click Reply, I will be replying to the original email sender instead of my work email.
I seriously doubt there is a rule that can do this. So, I think there must be a VBA solution. I’m a VB.NET developer with very little experience in Outlook programming. Please explain your solution in simple terms.
