VBA Script to Forward Spam to AntiSpam Provider Using "Blank" Form

Our anti-spam provider wants all false-negatives forwarded such that they can be run through their heuristic and linguistic algorithms to improve their capture rate. I was able to cobble together a script (works) and create a toolbar click (works) from various snippets of code. The problem is that the forward contains the default signature for forwards / replies (which they don't want to see). I've beaten my head against the wall trying to have the script to use a custom form (without a signature) to no avail. The signature is always there. Here's a copy of the script I'm using.




Sub SPAM()


Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem


Set objItem = GetCurrentItem()


Set objMail = objItem.Forward


objMail.To = "spam@mx25.net"


objMail.Display


Set objItem = Nothing


Set objMail = Nothing


End Sub




Function GetCurrentItem() As Object


Dim objApp As Outlook.Application


Set objApp = Application


On Error Resume Next


Select Case TypeName(objApp.ActiveWindow)


Case "Explorer"


Set GetCurrentItem = _


objApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)


Case "Inspector"


Set GetCurrentItem = _


objApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem


Case Else


End Select


End Function




Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)




End Sub






If someone could advise as how to either use a "blank" form for the submission or how to strip the signature, that would be blessing.




Thank you.
 
Not tested... but try objMail.body =""

then objMail.body = objitem.body

Or something like that. It you need to senders, address or date, you can create a header block :

Dim strHeader As String
strHeader = "------------------" & objItem.SenderName & vbCrLf & objItem.SenderEmailAddress & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
objMail.Body = strHeader & objItem.Body

Do they only need the body or also the message header?
 
Greetings All (and especially Diane Poremsky)




If your anti-spam provider would like exemplars of false-negatives and you want to automate the process at much as possible, the following script works flawlessly in an Outlook 2007 environment. It grabs the focused false-positive and just sends it off to the eval algorithms of your anti-spam provider. The only thing you have to change is the objMail.To reference. Here's the script.




Sub SPAM()


Dim objMail As Outlook.MailItem


Set objitem = GetCurrentItem()


Set objMail = objitem.Forward




objMail.Body = ""


objMail.Body = objitem.Body


objMail.To = "your anti-spam provider"


objMail.Display


Set objitem = Nothing


Set objMail = Nothing


End Sub




Function GetCurrentItem() As Object


Dim objApp As Outlook.Application


Set objApp = Application


On Error Resume Next


Select Case TypeName(objApp.ActiveWindow)


Case "Explorer"


Set GetCurrentItem = _


objApp.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)


Case "Inspector"


Set GetCurrentItem = _


objApp.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem


Case Else


End Select


End Function






Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)




End Sub
