This probably sounds complicated, but it works, all except my question here.

For one method of "email backup" at our small business, I've made use of journaling in Exhange Online. Here's the full path:
  1. Individual email messages to/from employees in their on Inboxes.
  2. All email activity for entire company is also journaled to a non-microsoft email account
  3. I then pull all email messages down via Outlook and remove from the journal email account, and archive as a backup.
With a previous email provider, I was able to use rules to move items to a subfolder something like "AllInternalOnlyEmails" for those that are from Employee1 to Employee2, another for outgoing email from employees to external addresses, another for incoming email FROM external addresses but to employees, and another that was an external email coming into the company, but for some reason, I did not find the exact "to" address.

Once we moved to Microsoft 365 Online Exchange, I lost that ability initially until I found that I could setup journaling in 365. So I set that up, sent to a non-microsoft email account used ONLY for this purpose. I setup Outlook to pull all the messages from the journal email account into a PST file on our network.

Now, I can "see" the From and To names in the Outlook main window, but if I open a message, it just shows something like "MicrosoftExchangea35s1f351d3f5a135f1....@ our full long microsoft domain name" + "on behalf of " + email sender name + <email sender address>.

This is a problem for rules, b/c rules doesn't find the correct addresses any longer.

Is there some way in VBA I can find this information? It's obviously there, but I have no way how to tell Outlook VBA where to find it.

Thanks for any suggestions
 
Thanks! That's what I got to thinking about: searching the header info. I'll have a look to see what I can find. If you're able to go into the regex, that'd be great as well. If not, I'm sure I can sort it out.
 
Isn't the header info - to, from - in the journal body? The attachment had the correct header info too


This is a regext sample - its to send a reply but can be tweaked to use in a rule.
