Outlook 2003 Calendar Entry Issues

Not open for further replies.


This is work related so forgive me but I cannot give too many details. I get emails of events that are to happen on specific dates, but the dates are just listed in the body of the message in the following format:

(This is just an example)


When: September 23, 2010 (could be 9/23/2010 or any variation)



What I am hoping for is to have these events automatically populate the Outlook Calendar when the messages come out. I wasn't sure if there was a way to set up a rule or a script to where Outlook could search the body for a date and put the entire message body as an entry on the calendar for that date. I realize this totally may not be possible but just figured I would let the experts give it a shot before I give up. Thanks.

Its not something you can do with native capabilities, but it should be possible (addins exist that take contact data from message bodies and create contacts). I'm not sure if there are any addins that do this - see http://www.slipstick.com/addins/calendar.asp - if not, you'll need to write your own scripts.
