Hi. I am a developer, but not familiar with the Outlook 2013 Object Model.
I have a client that has a small task -- In Outlook, he would like to be able to select an email message in his Inbox, and then click a button to append the sender's address to an existing "move to" rule
He has a "customers.pst" file; In that PST file, there is a "New Mail" folder.
In Outlook, he already has a rule defined that moves new emails from a list of senders (by email address) from his default Inbox to the "Customers\New Mail" folder (when new email is received.) It takes many steps to manually add a new customer address to that rule.
I assume this would be a simple VBA macro, wherein I would get the "sender" from a selected message, then add it to the existing rule using a call to "Outlook.Rule.Conditions.F
ents.Add" or something like that.
I did find this article: Create a Rule to Move Specific E-mails to a Folder
but have not been successful in modifying the sample code to meet my needs -- I've made a few attempts, but have not been able to point to the proper PST\Folder or successfully modify the "conditions".
It seems like it would not take much code, so does anyone have any examples?
