Dear Community,


I need help with the following and would really appreciate any and all of your help.


Currently I have 2 rules set up in my outlook inbox where whenever I send and email it 1)Automatically CC's me and 2) flags this email. Meaning that when I send an email it appears in my inbox as a flagged item for follow up.


What I'm trying to accomplish is a VBA macro that with either run continuously (preferably; don't know if this will create issues) or off of a command button that will:


1) Review my inbox and to determine if I have received a response to a flagged item.
2) If so, permanently delete the original email


Any code, help or guidance would go a long way. Thank you!


Regards,
NilsJohanEkman

Wow, sounds like you're writing an Outlook plugin. This calls for a better programming language! I have good news for you! Much of what you learned here with VBA will help you in the world of VB.NET

Visual Studio 2015 Community edition is free:

Try this question in a VB.NET forum and you will get a much better response. You might even find there are Outlook libraries for VB.NET that have done all the hard work for you!

I'm sure you could do this in Excel with VBA but just don't. Thank me later.
