Well, if you want a really backwards way to do it ( which is how I do it! ), i do it like the following:
1. Set up a complex rule in Outlook so that when a message arrives, the following sequence occurs:
a) Outlook can start up a program for you in the rule, i use it to start my perl program, which waits for:
b) Run the following VB script to save the email to a local file, which your perl script is polling
Sub WriteEmailToFile(MyMail As MailItem) Dim myMailEntryID As String Dim myMailBody As String Dim outlookNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace Dim outlookMail As Outlook.MailItem myMailEntryID = MyMail.EntryID Set outlookNameSpace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") Set outlookMail = outlookNameSpace.GetItemFromID(myMailEntryID) Set fileSystemObject = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") / you can create a dynamic text file name is you want... Set textFile = fileSystemObject.CreateTextFile("c:\temp\OutlookEma +il.txt", True) textFile.WriteLine (outlookMail.SenderEmailAddress) textFile.WriteLine (outlookMail.SentOn) textFile.WriteLine (outlookMail.Subject) outlookMailBody = outlookMail.Body 'strip non-printing characters For x = 127 To 255 While InStr(outlookMailBody, Chr(x)) > 0 outlookMailBody = Replace(outlookMailBody, Chr(x), "") Wend Next x textFile.WriteLine (outlookMailBody) textFile.Close End Sub

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
