Ok - I was so excited, I couldn't sleep last night ( by the way, I'm in Australia )
I have an idea - tell me if it's possible.
Is it possible to write a script - that will reply to an email automatically, 7 days after it arrives? ( so on a timer so too speak )
My current weekly sales is...
I did the thinking positive thing....... and guess what it worked.
I can't tell you how much I am impressed with your help in spoon-feeding me through creating and implementing these scripts.
Back in July 2013, I explained what I was trying too do - to 1/2 a dozen computer guru...

But now..... something has happened.....
What do I do when my select script box is empty ?
I'm editing my rules and alerts thru Outlook....... and when I go to select my script...... the script box is empty.

You would think some of them would have left a cheerio :)
I understand the - edit, cut and paste and save - then change from txt to vbs.
But do I just leave that file on the desktop???
Or - does it need to be in a certain directory for outlook and VB to read it??

Once again I will remind you that I am a novice.
But it appears to me that I can't have 2 scripts loaded at the same...

This was working yesterday ( with my test emails )
I did a reboot..... and now it won't work.
I have the script invoked within a rule in outlook.... all the other features within the same rule work..... email in... move to another folder... sound a wav file... show an alert... but then it...
Thank you Dianne.
I managed to get this working. ( I've never done coding or scripting before ) But I have a Masters in "Copy & Paste" ;)
Only problem I have is: That it is reply to the senders email address ( which is PayPal )
I need it to retrieve the email address from the body of...
