Hi, SQL server sends e-mail each time a meeting reservation is confirmed. On some line in body of e-mail the label 'Meeting Start:'  appears on a new line, always after a blank line.  That label is followed by meeting start date information in the format mm/dd/yyyy.  2 examples are pasted below - disregard any time info, we are only interested in start date.

Does anyone know how in Outlook 2010 a vba macro can grab the date in body of above mentioned e-mail, set flag and set the Start date same as date in body of e-mail?

Here is how the sart date appears in body of e-mail -- first the blank line, then Meeting Start label, followed by date ...

Meeting Start:    11/16/2010 2:00:00 PM

Meeting Start:         5/17/2011 11:00:00 AM (Eastern Standard Time)

Appreciate any thoughts/solutions.  Volume of generated e-mails is up, a macro to set flag and start date would eliminate number of user errors.  Thanks :-)
