Thread: Move Mails from Inbox to Archive

    Move Mails from Inbox to Archive

    Hi All,

    This is a requirement of an existing code. The below code works and saves the attachment and also marks the read mails as Processed.

    But I need to move these Processed mails from the Inbox to the folder, Archive_Proc. I am trying to Set the folder, objDestfolder as the destination folder for these processed mails to be moved. But I am getting object not found error (bolded line).
    How to fix the code?

        Dim olApp As Object
        Dim MYFOLDER As Object
        Dim OlItems As Object
        Dim olMail As Object
        Dim x As Integer
        Dim subject As String
        Dim strFile As String
        Dim strFolderpath As String
        Dim objDestfolder As Object
        Dim mychar As Object
        Dim sreplace As String
    
    
    
    Set olApp = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
    If Err.Number = 429 Then
        Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    End If
    
    
    strFolderpath = "C:\Users\Testing"
    'On Error Resume Next
    
    
    ' Set the Attachment folder.
    strFolderpath = strFolderpath & "\Attachments\"
    
    
        Set MYFOLDER = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").Folders("WeeklyProceedings Mailbox").Folders("Inbox")
    
        Set OlItems = MYFOLDER.Items
    
    
        For Each olMail In OlItems
            If olMail.subject Like "*Proceeding ID*" Then
                strFile = olMail & ".XML"
                strFile = strFolderpath & strFile
                If olMail.Attachments.Count > 0 Then
                    For x = 1 To olMail.Attachments.Count
                        olMail.Attachments.Item(x).SaveAsFile strFile
                    Next x
                    
                    subject = olMail.subject
                    sreplace = "_"
                    subject = Replace(subject, " ", sreplace)
                    olMail.Body = olMail.Body & vbCrLf & "The file was processed " & Now()
                    olMail.subject = "Processed - " & subject
                    'olMail.Move objDestfolder
                    olMail.Save
    
    
                End If
            End If
    
    
        Next
    
    
        Set objDestfolder = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").Folders("WeeklyProceedings Mailbox").Folders("Archive_Proc")
        olMail.Move objDestfolder
    
        
    Set MYFOLDER = Nothing
    Set OlMail = Nothing
    Set OlItems = Nothing
    Set olApp = Nothing
    Srt objDestfolder = Nothing

    After a quick search on the net, it was suggested that this could work. I've not tried it so no guarantees:
    Sub MoveDraftMail()
     Dim objOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim objNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim objSourceFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim objDestFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim objItem As Variant
    Dim Archive_Folder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Set objOutlook = New Outlook.Application
    Set objNamespace = objOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set objSourceFolder = objNamespace.Folders(10).Folders("Name of Folder")
    Set Archive_Folder = objNamespace.Folders("Online Archive - My@email").Folders("Personal_Folders").Folders("2021").Folders("InBox")
    For Each objItem In objSourceFolder.Items
        If TypeName(objItem) = "MailItem" Then
        objItem.Move Archive_Folder
        End If
    Next objItem
    Set objDestFolder = Nothing
    End Sub

    Oh, yes Aussiebear, your code, it worked. I tried and it moved my email from the "Name of Folder" within the 10th account's mailbox to the "2021\Inbox" folder within an online archive associated with the my email address.

    Use the app object to extract all attachments for a specific sender. Filter the messages with attachments and add all the attachment ids and their corresponding message ids to a list/dict .
