Hi,

Would you please advice me VBA code to move a message from a outlook folder to another.

I want to move a message which is in another folder as an attached message.
 for example outlook folder from_customer has some email which contain an attachment of a message want to collect the attached message and move to another outlook folder name New_messages.

I have multiple emails that contain such attachment therefore need to do a loop to move all attached messages to another folder mentioned above.

Please advice VBA code to do that.

Thanks

DO you want to move the email or the attachment email?

Are you trying to move these as they come in - email rules can do that
or
Are you trying to move them after the fact as a cleanup effort

You specifically ask for a macro and the question is in excel zone so I presume you want to run it from excel therefore see the following but modify the folders as appropriate as well as the sender email address:

Sub q1()
Dim olkApp As Object
Dim sourceFolder As Object
Dim destFolder As Object
Dim myItems As Object
Dim itm As Object
Dim str As String
Dim myRestrict As Object
Dim itemCount As Integer
Const olkFolderInbox As Integer = 6

    Set olkApp = CreateObject("outlook.application")
    Set sourceFolder = olkApp.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olkFolderInbox)
    Set destFolder = olkApp.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olkFolderInbox).Folders("new_Messages")
    
    Set myItems = sourceFolder.items

    str = "[senderemailaddress] = " & _
          quote("someone@somewhere.com")

    Set myRestrict = myItems.Restrict(str)
    For itemCount = myRestrict.Count To 1 Step -1
        myRestrict.Item(itemCount).Move destFolder
    Next

End Sub

Function quote(str) As String

    quote = "'" & str & "'"

End Function

Open in new window

Actually, I want to move the attachment message come in as email attachement. every email has the attachment which is a email message, wants to move those attachment email to different email folder. Not the message as it come in.

every email from a specific addressee has the attachment (only 1?) and its always a mail in itself and it is this attachment that is to be saved?  Is the attachment to be deleted from the original email?

Also noting the zone is still excel rather than outlook do you want to trigger this activity on demand in excel/access or when the mail is received in outlook itself?

Yes, every email has an attachment, which is a email message therefore want to move the attachment of each email to a specific email folder.

Please advise the VBA code for the purposes.
