    Saving many emails as files (Outlook 2000)

    Hi,

    Anybody know a way of setting up a rule or macro to save an email to a file when it comes from a specific person. The idea is that many emails are sent with data and we need that data in a text file so that excel can pick up these files.

    Any clues.........

    Regards

    Mike

    That's not a stock rule. There are some 3rd party utilities that do this. They run as add-ins and show up in rules as a custom action. Slipstick.com is your starting point to find one.

    You don't mention what your requirements are. But Excel doesn't sound like a good fit. Did you know you can like Access to your mail folders and work with data more directly? You could use a rule to move the mail into a sub-folder and set a link to that. Just a thought...

    Thanks for the info, I have looked at Slipstick.com, didn't find anything that would help, but I will look more deeply.

    What I am trying to do is put the data into a formatted report for the User, there are loads of files on a weekly basis and the spreadsheet reads them into the report. The only thing they have to do is save the email, it is very time consuming for them.

    Thanks, that seems to be what I need, I just need to get the User to pay for it...

    Many thanks...................... Mike

    Slipstick's Housekeeping and Message Management Page has a link to Personal Message Store (PST) Export Utility 1.0 which is an unsupported free utility that sounds like what you seek.
