How do I forward emails ONLY from a certain file (ie "forward" fil



  • 1. "Failed to Create Outlook Instanace"??
    We are trying to email from another program and are receiving this error message. We can do the exact same thing on another server and it work just fine. In fact it used to work on this particular server and it just quit working. Anyone have a clue??
  • 2. Doesn't recognize email accounts
    Recently, Outlook stopped recognizing my email accounts (I have one Hotmail and one POP3). When I go into Tools, Email Accounts, View.., both accounts show. When I test the POP3 account, it tests OK. But the Send/Receive button doesn't do anything and I have no Send button when I create a new email. I've tried unistalling and reinstalling, doing the Repair, deleting the outcmd.dat file... At this point I'm out of ideas. Please help!
  • 3. Asked for Password
    Environment consists of a Windows 2000 Domain with Exchange 2000. Desktop clients are Windows XP and Office XP. I have 1 domain user (account) who is able to authenticate to the Domain and browse the network, shares etc..according to set ACL's. Recently, however, when he opens Outlook, he is prompted for a username, password and domain. When we enter the correct domain information, it is rejected. I went as far as deleting his local profile, disjoining and rejoining the machine to the domain and reinstalling office but no fix. We have a Terminal Server setup for users to access email when on a none-member machine/or on the road. He is able to log on and open outlook just fine on that machine. Is this an Exchange issue, Outlook issue? Any help is appreciated. Sean

How do I forward emails ONLY from a certain file (ie "forward" fil

Postby cmhhYmVyb3Zh » Sat, 06 Sep 2008 12:16:00 GMT

I would like to setup a rule to forward ONLY emails from a certain folder 
that i'm naming "forward" in outlook to another email address. I am unable to 
figure out how using the rules. The reason that i cannot  just forward them 
from incoming is because i don't have access to the emails coming in, but can 
manually put them in this folder and i need to filter them really quick 
before sending them out. I deal with about 150-200 at my job in a day so this 
would be a HUGE help. Thank you Robert.

Outlook rules won't run later - you'll need a utility like auto-mate. See

1.Automatically forward email during certain times of day

I have a need to forward email messages from one account to another during 
the work day. Thought I could do it in VBA but am not seeing results with the 
following, in the ThisOutlookSession module (I'm using Outlook 2003):

Option Explicit

Public WithEvents olInboxItems As Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
    Dim objNS As NameSpace

    Set objNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set olInboxItems = objNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items
    Set objNS = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Quit()
    ' disassociate global objects
    Set olInboxItems = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olInboxItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)

    Dim fwdItem As Outlook.MailItem
    If Item.Class = olMail Then
        If DatePart("w", Date) > 1 And DatePart("w", Date) < 7 Then
            If DatePart("h", Time) > 17 And DatePart("h", Time) < 27 Then
                Set fwdItem = Item.Forward
                fwdItem.Recipients.Add " XXXX@XXXXX.COM "
            End If
        End If
    End If
    Set fwdItem = Nothing
End Sub

I simply compiled the above, closed Outlook 2003 and restarted it, with no 
luck when email came in. What am I missing/doing wrong? Thanks in advance for 
your help.

2.Using rules to forward Outlook email to Gmail - getting forwarded email showing up in inbox

Is there something wrong with the way I'm setting up this rule? I set
it up to forward every message I receive to "people or distribution
list" and have it forwarded to my gmail address. Now when it gets
forwarded a copy of the sent email is placed in my inbox. Is there any
way I can eliminate this redundant step?

There's no way to execute an automatic rule after sending a message, only 
when sending it.
