I am looking for a program that will sort incoming email thru outlook.  if subject = ' x' then save it to a text file in separate columns. one column for each: to, from , suject, message.


--->>>actually i wanted this on the server, but cant have a copy of outlook on the exchange..so my only solution is to have the exchange send to client..client sorts email...then if subject = 'x' then save to text, as I dont know if exchange can save to a text file.


here is what I have so far:

Sub SaveAsTXT_if_SUBJ_equals_X()
    Dim myItem As Outlook.Inspector
    Dim objItem As Object
    Dim strname as stirng

    strname = objItem.Subject
    Set myItem = Application.ActiveInspector


    If strname = "X" Then
        Set objItem = myItem.CurrentItem      

        objItem.SaveAs Environ("HOMEPATH") & "\My Documents\" &  strname & ".txt", olTXT
     
    Else
        MsgBox "There is no current active inspector."
    End If
End Sub

Here's a sample that may get you what you need.  What will you do with the messages?  This script will check every message in the Inbox every time, so if the messages still reside in the inbox, you'd get duplicate date when the script runs again, unless you create a new output file each time.

Also, choose your delimiter wiseley, since some of the message body may contain tabs, commas, semicolons, etc.  You could choose a delimeter like "~" and import into Excel using it as the specified delimeter.
Const ForWriting = 2
Const olFolderInbox = 6
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objResults = objFSO.CreateTextFile("Output.txt", ForWriting)
strDelim = "~"
Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")

strSubject = "Your Subject Here"

Set objFolder = objNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
Set colItems = objFolder.Items

For Each objItem in colItems
  If objItem.Subject = strSubject Then
    objResults.Writeline objItem.To & strDelim & objItem.Sender & _
    strDelim & objItem.Subject & strDelim & objItem.Body
  End If
Next

WScript.Echo "Done"

well simplicity...the emails can stay in the inbox...and can be deleted at the end of the month...

I need the code to check the subject line for a special charset or a split as the subject line will contain: "abc.com"...but when they reply...it will contain the forward so it should factor that in like: "FW:abc.com - your response to your acct" so it has to find the abc.com in there...if found sort to the text file...

this looks like vbscript...but I need VBA to put in a module inside the Outlook VBE....
