I am trying to set up a macro to move items sent through some POP3 accounts into my IMAP Sent Items folder (because I've created the POP3 accounts as send-from aliases).

I've followed the instructions at this page: http://www.slipstick.com/developer/code-samples/use-a-macro-to-move-imap-account-sent-items/

The macro works: messages do get moved to the IMAP folder. But, the IF statement involved isn't working. The macro doesn't move only messages for the specified Display Name account: it moves all sent items that end up in my local sent items folder.

Can anyone advise what's preventing this working as expected, please?
 
Thanks, Diane. Yes, sorry, you did answer the question but over on the article itself, because I also posted there (but then I decided to post here too, because I thought perhaps more people would see it).

I'll stick to discussing this though the Slipstick page itself, now you've kindly commented there, but just to answer your question above - I'm currently trying to use it with 2 accounts, but with a view to adding several more.

The scenario is this. I currently us a number of POP3 accounts, all on the same domain. I want to switch to IMAP, so I can access my mail and sent items from mobile devices. So, I'm planning to create a single IMAP account for one of the addresses, and direct mail for all my addresses into that at the server. Then, I'll keep the POP3 accounts set up in Outlook, and set them as send-only. So the final step I need is your code -- once we figure out why it's not working as expected -- to move messages sent through those POP3 accounts into the Sent Items folder inside my IMAP account.
 
I thought I answered it here yesterday. :) I sometimes start a reply then get sidetracked before posting the reply and thought that happened here. Unfortunately, I had 4 different browsers open, with 4 different fake names to test some settings... and I couldn't remember which account I may have used for a reply. Apparently, "none of the above" lol. (I love that the forum software saves drafts).

For anyone finding this thread - the conversation is at http://www.slipstick.com/developer/code-samples/use-a-macro-to-move-imap-account-sent-items/
 
Haha - I know that feeling, Diane! One of the reasons I want to do this, and still use Outlook as a mail client, is so that I can have multiple identities in a single place and avoid the confusion of lots of separate mailboxes or browser tabs showing mail! :)

I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with on the conversation on the Slipstick page. Keeping my fingers crossed that you can help me out with this. It's the final piece of the puzzle as far as streamlining my email is concerned!
