Creating out of an incoming email a Outlook Task

we are using the previous version of Add-In. We are having currently following question that we would like to solve.

We tried to send a Task request to Outlook using a vCS file structure. Unfortunately, we where not able to missuse it to create a Task instead of the appointment.

The idea is now using something like OutlookFolderItemsEvent to check if new emails where received in the Inbox if so we would go through the inbox and verify if an email was received with our special header. If so we would use it and convert the containing data values into a Task and delete the email afterwords.

How could we use the Add-In tools for this ?

Thanks Juergen

Hi Juergen.

Sorry for the delay.
I would advise you to use the NewMailEx event of the ADXOutlookAppEvents component to process incoming messages. To create a new task you can use the CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olTaskItem) method of the Outlook._Application interface.

P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them.
Besides, it may take us some time to investigate your issue. Please be sure we will let you know as soon as the best possible solution is found.
