Any MS Outlook experts?

Need help, probably need a macro but maybe another way exists.

Need something to move all email in the inbox to a specific folder automatically *at the end of every day.* That last part--making it automatic every day--is what's throwing me.

Any help is appreciated!

Does your Outlook application connect to a Microsoft Exchange server? Most businesses use Outlook as the PC email application but the email is actually managed by a server.

I ask because there is a different set of rules that can be set up on an Exchange server than can be set up using Outlook rules. The Exchange server is much more powerful as long as the server administrator knows what he/she is doing.

If he doesn't have an Exchange server and is getting email from a POP3 account (like most of us that have email accounts all over the web), he is limited to the Rules options within Outlook. Each version of Outlook is different when it comes to creating a Rule. The most robust version is Outlook 2003. That is the version I use. I just looked through the Rule options and could not find an option to move messages at a specific time of day to a specific folder. Although, I may have overlooked the option somewhere.

U.S. government server. Yeah, I tried to build/edit a rule. Figured it should be possible to build a macro, but I don't have the time to squirrel with it today.

Tom, I created a second folder, that I send all of the mail from folks in my address book to. It does it as the mail comes in. My INBOX is basically a catch all for stuff that gets by my spam filter.
I set mine up under, tools, message rules in the outlook page.
Hope this helps, if not mebbe head on over to Gerrit's help page and ask, them boys knows lotsa stuff.

Thanks Ron.

This is for my boss, who can't do stuff on his own...I manage my own mail, similarly to what you do.

Can you tell me where Gerrit's help page is?

Hey Bob,

You should have told me before!
Those mails are sent automatically and if you don't get it within an hour, something went wrong..
Anyway, I activated your account manually so you can go there and login.
Hope to see you there!
