Hi experts,

  I need to maintain a log of the mails that i have received, i am using the item add event for the same. However the problem is that the event is triggered only once if multiple items are received at a time. How can i get details of all the mails that have arrived?

Assuming you are using NewMailEx then see below

Chris
Private Sub NewMailEx(ByVal EntryIDCollection As String)

Dim mai As mailitem

Dim strEntryID() As String

Dim intFinal As Integer

Dim testObj As Object
 

    strEntryID = Split(EntryIDCollection & ",", ",")

    For intFinal = 0 To UBound(strEntryID) - 1

        Set testObj = Application.Session.GetItemFromID(strEntryID(intFinal))

        If testObj.Class = olMail Then

            set mai = testobj

' Process your email here

        end if

    next

'...

Re-reading then of course this is not the add event to the folder BUT it is a mechanism for processing all the received mails in a batch.

when can the above procedure be called? Does it get called automatically when new mails are received?

It is automatically called and resides in thisoutlooksession as one of the application events.

i.e. the correct sub name is:

Private Sub Application_NewMailEx(ByVal EntryIDCollection As String)

FYI

Because I often generate this event handler for different Questions in EE I call out from the Application_NewMailEx sub to a question specific variant so my apologies for the misleading naming of the original post.

Hi BlueDevilFan, I am facing one problem with the solution, I am trying to use the event you mentioned, however there is a rule set on the client machine which moves the mail to a particular folder, and the newmailex item is not triggered :(.
Can u help in this?

Can you upload your code for newmailex and the settings used for their rule.

In the meantime I will look at precedence for code

I have looked to confirm precedence and it is as I would expect, newmailex fires before the rule therefore I would suspect the implementation of code on their PC, and is teh reason I requested the code details.

Hi Chris thanks for your feedback, actually i had checked the documentation on msn regarding this event and it mentioned the same thing that the event fires before any rules are applied. However i dont know why i am facing an issue, the client is busy currently so i am not able to work on the m/c. So will reply to you soon.

HI chris i tried to debug the problem, but surprisingly the event doesnt trigger on the Client's mc (works for Default Inbox only).

 Also I tried to use the code in my machine (after modifying it suitably),I got an error in the line
Set testObj = Application.Session.GetItemFromID(strEntryID(intFinal))

I think this is because the mail must have moved to the personal folder and as u know the EntryId is changed by Outlook once a mail is moved. So i guess it means that the entire code in the event is not executed before the rule is applied :(. The code i used is attached herwith.
Private Sub Application_NewMailEx(ByVal EntryIDCollection As String)
 

Dim mai As MailItem

Dim strEntryID() As String

Dim intFinal As Integer

Dim testObj As Object

Dim i As Integer

Dim SenderAddress As String

Dim sqlQuery As String, MailType As String
 

MailType = "External"

strEntryID = Split(EntryIDCollection & ",", ",")

For intFinal = UBound(strEntryID) - 1 To 0 Step -1

        If intFinal = UBound(strEntryID) - 1 Then

            constr = "Data Source=blah;Initial Catalog=blah;User Id=sa;Password=blah;Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;"

            Set con = New ADODB.Connection

            con.Open constr

        End If

        Set testObj = Application.Session.GetItemFromID(strEntryID(intFinal))

        If testObj.Class = olMail Then

            Set mai = testObj

            If mai.To = "IN, Consultingschool" Then

                    SenderAddress = R_GetSenderAddress(mai)

                    If InStr(1, UCase(SenderAddress), UCase("marijke.dekker@capgemini.com"), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

                        MailType = "Internal"

                    End If

                    If InStr(1, UCase(SenderAddress), UCase("severine.cano@capgemini.com"), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

                        MailType = "Internal"

                    End If

                    If InStr(1, UCase(SenderAddress), UCase("lorna.ball@capgemini.com"), vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

                        MailType = "Internal"

                    End If
 

                    sqlQuery = sqlQuery & "'" & SenderAddress & "'," 'Replace(mai.SenderName, "'", "") & "'," 'GetReplyToAddress(mai)  '.SenderEmailAddress

                    sqlQuery = sqlQuery & "'" & Replace(mai.To, "'", "") & "',"

                    sqlQuery = sqlQuery & "'" & Replace(mai.Subject, "'", "") & "',"
 

                    sqlQuery = sqlQuery & "'" & Month(mai.ReceivedTime) & "/" & _

                    Day(mai.ReceivedTime) & "/" & Year(mai.ReceivedTime) & " " & _

                    Hour(mai.ReceivedTime) & ":" & Minute(mai.ReceivedTime) & ":" & _

                    Second(mai.ReceivedTime) & "','" & MailType & "')"

                    con.Execute sqlQuery

            End If

       End If

 Next

 con.Close
 

End Sub

Yes Chris, it is located in thisoutlooksession and is the only so named Sub (we get a compiler error Ambiguous name detected when you have 2 Sub with same name right?)

MAcros enabled?

BUT:::::

The receive event fires off the default mailbox so am I missing some detail?
