I need outlook to automatically move all messages with a particular subject into a network folder.

Easy enough...

Problem: Say I send, they reply, I send, they reply.. and multiple versions of the same message are created and dropped into this network folder.

I need a some type of trick/methodology to replace the previous message with the most current email in this network folder. while deleting or moving the old messages out of the network folder. .

If the subject is equal, there's nothing to do as an existing file gets

overwritten.

Best regards

Overwriting an existing file can be avoided by testing its existence

Dim myFID As String

Set myFS = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

> ..

myFID = ...

If myFS.FileExists(myFID) ...

but how can "the most current email" be detected?
