Thread: Macro to run for all incoming email as it arrives

    Macro to run for all incoming email as it arrives

    Hi All,

    I'm brand new to VBA, i'm trying to find a way of running a macro when an email arrives. I cant find any rule actions which allow you to run scripts (which i believe was removed in later versions for security reasons).

    How would I have a macro run every time an email arrives? I understand Outlook will always need to be open for this to even be a possibility but i'm not sure what needs to be added to the test macro below so it runs every time a new email comes in.

    Sub SayHello()
    MsgBox "Hello World!"
    End Sub

    thanks.

    You are going to need the scripts, which can be restored to rules - https://www.extendoffice.com/documen...t-missing.html
    Then what you want is simple
    Sub HelloWorld(olItem As Outlook.MailItem)    With olItem
            MsgBox "Hello World!"
        End With
    lbl_Exit:
        Exit Sub
    End Sub
    The macro then runs when the message arrives in the inbox.
