It looks like there aren't any conditions that meet what you want in the

Rules collection, so a rule that runs a script is your best bet.

Well, the rule calling the macro "script" is passed a Mailitem object for

the item. To check for Subject containing a specific word:

Sub myRuleCode(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

If InStr(1, Item.Subject, "foobar", vbTextCompare) > 0 Then

' it has the subject word "foobar" there

To check for the recipient being in a specific AddressBook you'd need to get

the Item.Recipients collection and iterate, checking each Recipient for

their email address and seeing if the Recipient.Type = olTo (if you only

want to check the To recipient or recipients).

The AddressBook would be retrieved from the AddressLists collection as an

AddressList object. You'd get its AddressEntries collection and iterate that

looking for an AddressEntry where the Address property was equal to the

Recipient.Address.

To check for the sender being in the AddressEntries collection you'd use the

Item.SenderEmailAddress property and compare that to each

AddressEntry.Address value in that AddressBook.

If you know the name of the AddressBook you want to work with you'd get it

like this:

Dim oList As Outlook.AddressList

Set oList =

Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI").AddressLists.Item("myAddressList")

That should get you going.
