Saving an attachment - outbox and sent mail conflicts

I'm trying to figure out code to save an attachment from mail that was "just

sent" not even a second after the Sent Mail is clicked.

I can't seem to do it. The code checks the outbox and sent mail and using

loOutBox.items.GetLast() and it just keeps sending the mail that was sent

"right before" the last mail was sent. It's as if Outlook is in the process

of transferring the Email sent from the outbox to the Sent Mail so it seems

to always grab the mail prior to the one that was sent.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

I meant to say I'm trying to save the entire mail that was sent (as an msg

file) not the attachment.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

I'm trying to figure out code to save the last Email that was sent to an

msg file.

loOutBox.items.GetLast() does not seem to work and all too often gets the

Email sent prior to the very last one sent.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

Problem solved - as long as I check both the outbox and SentMail then

GetLast will work.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

You shouldn't be checking Outbox, code tickling of the item there will

interrupt and cancel the send.

What you should be doing is handling the ItemAdd() event of the Items

collection of the Sent Items folder. That will tell you exactly what item

was added to Sent Items and you don't have to fool around with GetLast() and

which item it will return.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

Can you provide some sample code on how to utilize the ItemAdd so as to save

the last item sent?

Thanks,

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

Just to clarify - A program runs right after they click the Send button from

their Email but the program is not script in the Outlook Email. A separate

program is launched and I can't seem to figure out how to get the last Email

sent so that I can save it. As it turns out, trying to get info first from

the Outbox does not work either. Still, all to often getlast is grabbing

the second to the last Email that was sent.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

I'm not sure what you're saying: "A program runs right after they click the

Send button from

their Email but the program is not script in the Outlook Email.". What does

that mean?

If a program is already running, either a COM addin or a standalone program,

it can subscribe to the ItemAdd() event on the Items collection of Sent

Items. You can see an ItemAdd() handler for Inbox at www.outlookcode.com by

searching for "zaphtml".

If a program is started after the item is sent and after the item has

already been added to Sent Items then an ItemAdd() handler is useless to

you. The item will already have been added by the time the program runs.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

There is script in the Email being sent that runs the program. I would have

thought that getlist would work but it just does not always seem to get the

latest Email.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

I still don't understand.

You say now the script is in the email but before you said the script was

not in the email. "A program runs right after they click the Send button

from their Email but the program is not script in the Outlook Email."

What is that program and where is it? Is this an Outlook custom form? What

is "getlist"?

To handle the ItemAdd() event for Sent Items you will either need a COM

addin, a standalone program started before the email is sent or Outlook VBA

code. Form code cannot handle any events outside the actual form.

Re: Save Last Email Sent To MSG File

I think I have resolved the problem. If I use an API Sleep(8000) in my

program it seems to work.

Yes, I have an outlook custom form that runs the program in the custom

form's Item_Send event. Then I want the program to save the form. It now

seems to be working when I issue the Sleep(8000). It seems that it needs a

slight delay from the Item_send() event and when the program is launched so

that Outlook and put the Email in the Outbox and/or sent mail.

Thanks again for all your help.
