    Move emails that contain an ID number to a folder

    Hi there,

    Ive been looking for some time and trying new things however i cant figure it out.

    We have ID numbers that start with the letter K followed by 6 to 8 numbers e.g K123456 or K87654321

    80% of the time customers include this ID in the Subject line however some put it in the email itself.

    Is there a way to get these messages filtered into a folder called 'Case Updates'

    e.g when an email arrives if it contains K and a number from 100000 - 99999999 then mark as read and move to Case Updates

    Thank You in advance for any help

    Use a rule that processes all incoming messages with the following script

    Sub MoveID(oItem As MailItem)
    Dim strSubject As String
    Dim olFolder As Folder
        olFolder = Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).folders("Case Updates")
        If TypeName(oItem) = "MailItem" Then
            strSubject = oItem.Subject
            If strSubject Like "*K###### *" Or strSubject Like "*K####### *" Or strSubject Like "*K######## *" Then
                oItem.Move olFolder
            End If
        End If
        Set olFolder = Nothing
        Exit Sub
    End Sub
