    Subject Line (Outlook 2000 / 2003)

    Is there a way to automaticlly have Outlook push the text of the Subject line of an email to an Access database based on the From address of the email?


    Thanks for any help

    When should Outlook push something? When an e-mail is received, or when an e-mail is sent, or both?

    When I receive an email from a given address, then the subject line of that email would be pushed to a database.

    I thought it might be possible to use the Application_NewMail event for this. Unfortunately, this event doesn't fire for each individual new mail, but for each group of received mails. Moreover, according to the newsgroups it is not really dependable. And it doesn't provide any info about the new mails, so you'd have to find out for yourself. This is beyond me, perhaps someone else can help.

    Note: it is possible to create a link to your Inbox in Access; you could use a query to filter the records from a specific sender.

    Adding to Hans comments, in Outlook 2003 an Item_Add event can be created in the ThisOutlookSession module. It would be coded as targeted at the Inbox to capture each new incoming message, and it is reliable. But it's not available in Outlook 2000.

    Maybe if you explained your general objective we could think about other solutions?
