    Automatic reply on incoming messages in outlook using VBA(only Specifi person)

    the messages were eventually sent but still did not appear in sent items. The two problems that made fixing this take so long were 1. Believing I could run the script on any message in the inbox (as opposed to a newly arrived one) 2. Thinking the script had not worked because there was no...

If I send a fresh email the rule works correctly. if I run the rule on the same email (in the inbox) whether it is read OR unread, the rule does not work so it looks as if there is an additional flag somewhere or it happens at a different step in the process.

    And finally, in case any odd characters had got into the script, I 1. deleted the script 2. manually edited the opening lines of the working macro 3. Tried again. Still nothing. Is there some form of security that applies to scripts and not to macros that is stopping this?

    Thanks for the reply. Yes well I thought everything looked fine as well :-( hence the absence of hair! What else can I do/try to get to the bottom of this? 1. http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/rules/outlooks-rules-and-alerts-run-a-script/ actually says add Stop processing more rules. 2. I...

    Automatic reply on incoming messages in outlook using VBA(only Specifi person)

    Hi and HELP!! This VBA automatic reply is driving me nuts. It sort of worked occasionally but as I fiddled my way towards the desired goal it stopped working and now I cant get it to work at all (well the rule works but the script is never run) so: I deleted the VBA module1 and the rule; Shut...
