Hi, Caiapfas.

Pull out what addresses?  The organizer's address for meetings?  The addresses of other meeting attendees?  Both?  What do you want to do with the addresses?

Sorry, I don't understand.  Can you clarify?  Also, what do you want to do with whatever is pulled out?

Oh, so you want to pull email addresses from the notes section of the appointment.  That's different and a bit more difficult.  I'll put something together and post it as soon as I can, hopefully by the end of the day.

Clearly that took me a lot longer than I had said.  I apologize for that.

Here's the code.  Follow these instructions to add it to Outlook.

1.  Start Outlook
2.  Click Tools > Macro > Visual Basic Editor
3.  If not already expanded, expand Microsoft Office Outlook Objects
4.  If not already expanded, expand Modules
5.  Select an existing module (e.g. Module1) by double-clicking on it or create a new module by right-clicking Modules and selecting Insert > Module.
6.  Copy the code from the Code Snippet box and paste it into the right-hand pane of Outlook's VB Editor window
7.  Edit the code as needed.  I included comments wherever something needs to or can change
8.  Click the diskette icon on the toolbar to save the changes
9.  Close the VB Editor

To use the code

1.  Run the macro GetAddressesFromAppointments
Sub GetAddressesFromAppointments()
    'On the next line edit the path and name of the file'
    Const FILE_NAME = "C:\eeTesting\Addresses.csv"
    Dim olkItems As Outlook.Items, olkAppt As Outlook.AppointmentItem, strAddresses As String, objFSO As Object, objFile As Object
    Set olkItems = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderCalendar).Items
    With olkItems
        .Sort "[Start]"
        .IncludeRecurrences = True
    End With
    For Each olkAppt In olkItems
        If (Year(olkAppt.Start) <= Year(Date)) And (Month(olkAppt.Start) <= Month(Date)) And (Day(olkAppt.Start) <= Day(Date)) Then
            strAddresses = strAddresses & GetEmailAddresses(olkAppt.Body)
        End If
    Set olkItems = Nothing
    Set olkAppt = Nothing
    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(FILE_NAME)
    objFile.WriteLine Mid(strAddresses, 1, Len(strAddresses) - 1)
    Set objFile = Nothing
    Set objFSO = Nothing
    msgbox "Done"
End Sub

Function GetEmailAddresses(strBody As String) As String
    Dim objRegEx As Object, colMatches As Object, varMatch As Variant
    Set objRegEx = New RegExp
    With objRegEx
        .IgnoreCase = True
        .Global = True
        .Pattern = "([a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)@([a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]+)\.([a-zA-Z]{2,5})"
        Set colMatches = .Execute(strBody)
    End With
    For Each varMatch In colMatches
        GetEmailAddresses = GetEmailAddresses & varMatch & ","
    Set objRegEx = Nothing
    Set colMatches = Nothing
End Function

Open in new window

I object.  The code I posted does exactly what the OP asked for.
