I receive emails like this everyday:

The file Resume.docx has been sent with the subject Resume0213, and has been archived.

Original Message:

  Date: Wed, 01 Oct 2014 13:42:25 +0100
  Subject: Resume0213
  From: abc@xyz.com
  To: <def@pqr.com>

I have a vbscript which when executed, would go through my emails in a particular folder and compile them, and would email me that output.

The relevant portion of the code is below:

strBuf = "<tr><td>Date</td><td>Time</td><td>File</td><td>Subject</td><td>Action</td><td>From</td><td>To</td></tr>"
Set olkApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set olkSes = olkApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")
olkSes.Logon olkApp.DefaultProfileName
Set olkFld = OpenOutlookFolder(FOLDER_PATH)
For Each olkMsg In olkFld.Items
    arrLin = Split(olkMsg.Body, vbCrLf)
    arrWrd = Split(arrLin(0), " ")
    strDat = FormatDateTime(olkMsg.ReceivedTime, vbShortDate)
    strTim = FormatDateTime(olkMsg.ReceivedTime, vbShortTime)
    strFil = arrWrd(2)
    strSub = arrWrd(9)
    strAct = arrWrd(13)
    arrWrd = Split(arrLin(6))
    strFrom = arrWrd(3)
    arrWrd = Split(arrLin(7))
    strTo = arrWrd(3)
    strBuf = strBuf & "<tr><td>" & strDat & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strTim & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strFil & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strSub & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strAct & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strFrom & "</td>" _
                    & "<td>" & strTo & "</td></tr>"
Next

Open in new window



The problem I have is that the To: line has special characters < and >, which might be interfering with the script.

I recieve compiled emails like this:

Date            Time      File            Subject            Action            From            To
10/1/2014      08:41      Resume.docx      Resume0213      archived.      abc@xyz.com
10/1/2014      02:32      Cover.txt      Coverletter      archived.      abc@xyz.com
10/1/2014      02:19      Resume.doc      Resume for the post of -  archived.      tre@opt.com

As you can see, the To field is empty.

Please help me with this. Thank you.

Maybe

strTo = Replace(Replace(arrWrd(3), ">", "&gt"), "<", "&lt")

So maybe

strTo = Replace(Replace(arrWrd(3), ">", ""), "<", "")
