I've done a decent amount of internet searching and have not been able to find an answer to this question. Every day I spend countless hours sorting emails and am looking for a macro that can file emails from the inbox into specific folders.

The way I see it, the user would select an email and run the macro which would read the subject line of the email for a specific string. It would then send the email to a folder that shared that string. The destination folders may reside on various pst files, so this might complicate things. Maybe separate macros could be set up for separate pst files?

Does anyone know if this is possible or how to do it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
 
I don't know if there is a macro (it would be complicated), but there are utilties you can for this. I use Auto-mate myself - its a rules engine that can run rules later - but there are also tools like NEO and ClearContaext, and QuickFile that do this sort of thing.
