I would like to run a VBA macro when an email arrives.  However, when I specified "run a script", my dialog box does not let me select any of the macros I created.  
Am I missing something here?  Are scripts and macros different?

Save in module. The first line should look like

Sub RunAScriptRule(MyMail As MailItem)

YES!  It was the parenthetical argument I neglected.
