Hi,

New to this forum and been finding solution to make my work easier.

Issue:
I need to forward system auto generated email to users in email body.

eg.
Related email: ABC.ZXC@gmail.com, QWE234@yahoo.com.au

I found @Diane Poremsky post on "find a code in the message body, then forward" and changed Regex pattern to suit my need

With Reg1
.Pattern = "(Related email:\s*([\w-\.]*\@[\w-\.]*)\s*)\.\s*([\w-\.]*\@[\w-\.]*)\s*)"
.IgnoreCase = True
.Global = False

However the result forward recipients is only the first email address. ie. ABC.ZXC@gmail.com. What i need is all email addresses after the word "related to: "

What is the correct pattern to regex those email addresses


Thank you in advance
JJ
 
Is it all on one line /one sentence, nothing else on the line, with the address separated by colons or semicolons?

If so, this should work - if not try with just \r or \n at the end.
(Related email:\s*(.*)\r\n)

If not, how are they formatted in the line?

Hi Diane,

Addresses are separated by comma in one sentence.

eg.
Related email: ABC.ZXC@gmail.com, QWE234@yahoo.com.au


My code below:

Sub FWNew(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

Dim Reg1 As Object
Dim M1 As Object
Dim M As Object
Dim strAddress As String

Set Reg1 = CreateObject("VBScript.RegExp")

With Reg1
.Pattern = "(Related email:\s*([\w-\.]*\@[\w-\.]*)\s*)\.\s*([\w-\.]*\@[\w-\.]*)\s*)"
.IgnoreCase = True
.Global = False
End With

If Reg1.test(Item.Body) Then

Set M1 = Reg1.Execute(Item.Body)
For Each M In M1
strAddress = M.SubMatches(1)
Next
End If

Set myForward = Item.Forward
myForward.Recipients.Add strAddress

myForward.Display
 
Hi @Diane Poremsky,

I managed to get the email addresses as my forward email recipients but encounter another error.

Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)': Outlook does not recognize one or more names.

However the recipients email address become send-able if I leave it awhile which I believe outlook manage to find in address books.

Been googling and check forums but seems like there is no solution to this issue. I have tried the followings
1. Disable check names
2. Custom order of checking address lists in starting with the list with most address.

Any workaround?

Thank you in advance
 
Try changing this

myForward.Recipients.Add strAddress


to this (the Dim line can go at the top of the macro)

Dim objRecip As Recipient
Set objRecip = myForward.Recipients.Add(strAddress)
objRecip.Type = olTo ' olCC or olBCC
objRecip.resolve

Hi Diane,

Your resolve solution does not solve the error.

I notice if strAddress is only one email address no issue at all but I will have at least two email addresses.

Hi Diane,

How about adding a code to "Tab" olTo? This seems to work when I manually "Tab" To field in myForward.Display.
