Copying new message to public folder

Copying new message to public folder

Post by Doug » Fri, 24 Aug 2007 00:27:56


We have a collection of public folders (typically about 100 of them) for
project-related email. We currently ask staff to manually save
project-related mail in the appropriate folder. I've written a macro that
makes this easy to do for incoming mail. But for sent mail, I can't figure
how to best do it.

I tried hooking Application_ItemSend. From there I can copy the email to the
public folder no problem. But unfortunately the message hasn't been sent
yet, so the message shows up as "Not Yet Sent".

I can probably accomplish what I want by CC to the public folder, but to do
that I have to get the folder's email address, and then I have to contend
with Outlook's security prompts or get Redemption, which will complicate the
deployment.

I would welcome any other suggestions...thanks!

I should also mention -- the environment is Windows XP SP2, Office 2003 and
Exchange Server 2003.

Why don't you use the ItemAdd event of the SentItems folder?

Thanks so much! I'm new to Outlook VBA & didn't know that could be done, but
I was able to Google up a couple of examples.
