Dear experts,

Using Outlook 2003, I have set a rule that is fired when a email comes into my inbox with the word "test" in the subject. This should "run a script" (subroutine) called test() which is saved in ThisOutlookSession

Sub test(Item As Outlook.MailItem)
    MsgBox Item.Subject
End Sub

However this does not work.

What am i doing wrong? how can I get this to work?
