check if send message appears in SendItems forder before moving

Not open for further replies.


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account

I'm using the code below (snipset) to send a mail with a Excel range in the body from within Excel.

This works almost perfect.

The only problem i'll have (randomly) is that i see that the send message isn't always moved to the destination folder.

To avoid this behavior, i would like to check if the send message appears into the Send Items folder before i move it to the destination folder.

Anyone out there who can provide me those few code lines that i need to place between the .send & moving the message to the destination folder (between the 2 red lines in the sub below)?

I think that a kind of loop will do it, but i have no clue on how to code it. All used code so far in this sub comes from different sites, and put it toghether like a jigsaw .

the criteria to look for is: strSubject & Date (green line).

Code below runs from a Excel 2010 worksheet and use late binding.

This makes it easier to distribute or run the worksheet on different PC's without the need to set everywhere a reference to the Outlook 14 vba library.

Sub Mail_Selection_Range_Outlook_Body()

'basic code from:


' Don't forget to copy the function RangetoHTML in the module.

' Working in Office 2000-2010


'adapted & extended by Ludo Soete


'create a new folder to store the mails after sending

'folder name = "Verpakte Units"

'if folder doesn't exist, create it

On Error GoTo errorhandler

Set myDestFolder = mySendMail.Folders("Verpakte Units")


On Error Resume Next

With OutMail

> To = strMailToRec1 & ";" & strMailToRec2 & ";" & strMailToRec3 & ";" & strMailToRec4 'strRecipient

> CC = ""

> BCC = ""

> Subject = strSubject & Date

> HTMLBody = strBody1 & "<br>" & "<br>" & strBody2 & "<br>" & strFrom & "<br>" & "<br>" & "Verstuurd om: " & Time & "<br>" & "<br>" & RangetoHTML(rng)

.Send '.Display '

'inform the user that the mail has been send

'dont move this, ensure there's enough time to send so that we can move the mail

If blnMsgboxSendToMessage = True Then

MsgBox "Uw mail werdt verstuurd naar :" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & strMailToRec1 & vbCrLf & strMailToRec2 & vbCrLf & strMailToRec3 & vbCrLf & strMailToRec4, vbInformation, "Mail verstuurd"

End If

'check if message moved to the SendItems folder before moving to destination folder


'move send mail to myDestination folder

Set myItem = myItems.Find("[Subject] =" & strSubject & Date) '

While TypeName(myItem) <> "Nothing"

If myItem.Subject = strSubject & Date Then

myItem.Move myDestFolder

End If

Set myItem = myItems.FindNext


strDestinationFolder = myDestFolder.Name

strSendMailboxName = mySendMail.Name

'show frmMsgMovedMessage depending on the blnfrmShowMovedMessage value

If blnfrmShowMovedMessage = True Then


End If

End With

End Sub

Thanks for any help
