moving e-mail to folder - macro for Outlook 2003

Hello
I need a macro which works as follows:

The macro checks if:
- the e-mail message(s) is not flagged
- the e-mail message(s) is read

if both conditions are met, then:
- if macro is executed from open e-mail message, the message is closed and e-mail is moved to folder "Work", subfolder "Processed"
- if macro is executed from e-mail folder then selected e-mails (one or more) are moved to folder "Work", subfolder "Processed"

if e-mail is unread or flagged, then nothing happens

The macro should work in Outlook 2003

thanks a lot!

You don't talk about the folders parent but I assume below that it's the default inbox ...

Chris
Sub moveMail()
Dim mai As Object

    If TypeName(Application.ActiveWindow) = "Explorer" Then
        For Each mai In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
            movemailPayload mai
        Next
    ElseIf TypeName(Application.ActiveWindow) = "Inspector" Then
        movemailPayload Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    Else
        Exit Sub
    End If

End Sub

Sub movemailPayload(mai As MailItem)
    Stop
    If Not mai.UnRead Then Exit Sub
    If mai.FlagStatus <> olNoFlag Then Exit Sub
    mai.Move Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Folders("Work").Folders("Processed")
    
End Sub

Open in new window

Dear Chris,
thank you very much, it works!
Can you please tell me if I can assign a shortcut key to this macro in Outlook 2003?
Or add it to some toolbar?
thanks once again,
Jarek

Dear Chris,
can you please add another "if" in appropriate place in  moveMail() so that the the procedure is not ended when you select all items in a folder and among selected items you have not only emails but e.g. meeting invitations. such items should be skipped but the loop should continue.
thank you
Jarek
