I searched the forum and the keyword "Rule" comes up with lots of entries, but I can't seem to find this one...

Is there a way to programatically add a Rule to Outlook?

Thanks!

Hi Ed,

Outlook 2007+ allows you to create a rule programmatically. The pathway is: Namespace.Stores, Store.GetRules, Rules.Create.

Andrei,

Thanks! It occurred to me that I could also move mail items when they come into the inbox through an event. Is there an event I can hook into to check incoming mail and move the desired mail items into my folder?

Thanks!

Ed,

You can handle the ItemAdd event of the Items collection of that folder.

Andrei,

Do you have some sample code on how to programmatically move a mail item from one folder to another?

Thanks!

Hi Ed,

I don't have such code. Please see TMailUtem.Move.

Sorry, TMAilItem.Move, not TMailUtem.Move :)
