If you use the rules object model the resulting rule cannot be hidden, it

will show up in the rules wizard. You would need to code the equivalent of

the rule as macro code or a COM addin and replace the rule completely.

Thanks for reply,




How can we use COM addin to replace the rule?Can I get some example? or more explanation.


I have created COM addin and used rule object and rule can seen in rule wizard.






Outlook.MAPIFolder inbox= this.Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox);
Outlook.MAPIFolder targetfolder = inbox.Folders["Test"];



rules = this.Application.Session.DefaultStore.GetRules();
rule = rules.Create("TestRule", Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlRuleType.olRuleReceive);




Outlook.TextRuleCondition sub = rule.Conditions.Subject;
sub.Enabled = true;
sub.Text = new string[] {"Test Subject"};



movecopy = rule.Actions.MoveToFolder;
movecopy.Enabled = true;
movecopy.Folder = targetfolder;




rule.Execute(true, inbox, false, Outlook.OlRuleExecuteOption.olRuleExecuteUnreadMessages);




How COM addin can use to create hidden rule?

As I said, you cannot use an addin to create a hidden rule, there is no such

thing.

You would use code in an addin to replicate what your rule does, under the

same conditions. Since a rule runs when items are added to the Inbox, you

need an ItemAdd() handler for Inbox.Items or a handler for NewMailEx(). Then

you would test the incoming item for the same conditions the rule would test

for, and take the same action the rule would take. In this case you would

test the subject for certain text and move the item if the test was true.
