Hi guys,

I'm not sure where this query fits in the forums so I'm posting it here. Does anyone have a timed macro for outlook that checks through a specific days emails (say every 5 minutes) and identifies the headers, then after receiving all pre-defined headers will send a mail to my own account. Sounds a bit long winded but what I'm trying to accomplish here is because I have bags of emails coming in from all the systems backed up round the clock, I'm trying to work a system where at the end of the day if I haven't received all specific emails for all backups for the day for a specific sector, I will be able to note that the sector emails haven't been received with the correct header hence there is a problem. And I in turn will have to go manually see which backups have failed.

And in the worse case scenario that no such macro exists, could someone possibly point me to a piece of software that might do such a job?

Regards

Instant party :)

The problem is that Outlook VBA doesn't have a timer function built in... but if you can get past that part (reminders or new mail can be used as a trigger), the rest should be somewhat easy if you can write vba. I am not aware of any pre-existing macro that will do this though.

The only software I am aware of that might be able to do this is Auto-Mate but I'm not even sure about that.

Thanks Diane, sorry I posed this questions ages ago and it totally slipped my mind. I am currently checking out the software and it looks like that might be the exact software I'm looking for. Tnx very much. Huge hugs from europe
