RE: Macro to Run Rules
I have OUtlook 2007, I know nothing about VBA and would appreciate it if you
would write a macro that would run a rule. I have the rule set up to run
first, but it does not run, I have to run it automatically, I don't know why
it does not run, all the other rules run. They are all set to run from the
INbox, this one is set up to run in the junk file.
I get 3000 spam a day, I set up a rule that, depending on a specific word in
the subject line, it will delete the message when the rule is run. I can run
it manually but it is a pain. I want to put a button on my toolbar to run the
rule with one click.
I was thinking of a macro but maybe there is another way?
