Any EXACT help you could give me (like JAL files I could look at and see how to put this together as I do not see the command struct for "monitor email" maybe you can help just point me to this) cbotosan@urm.com

: I think you can setup this using 3 or maybe more job: 1st job to monitor a
: "subject" and 2nd to monitor a "text in body". When
: fired, 1st and 2nd jobs will modify 3rd job to start after certain wait
: and send a mail. If any 1st and 2nd jobs get fired again because of a new
: email message and 3rd job is pending they should disable the 3rd job. If
: the 3rd job gets fired, it may send a "different mail".

There is no command. Open your job in the Job Propertiees Wizard, go to step 4 and from "Run this job" drop-down list select "when an email message arrives" for the schedule type. That's it.

This is great I am just missing the other 1/2 of the equation to make it run! The drop down is great but I sort of need to know how to get to the other half of my question too.

1. Listen for an email (got that thank you :)

2. Compose a response (respond to email) based on subject or body I want an email to go back based on subject for right now!

3. Wait a while before sending it (schedule the email to go out X minutes after reciept)

Can a enlist your help one more time??

1. Done
2 and 3. Compose a response and send it X minutes later

Code the following:

// Wait for example 5 minutes (300 seconds) before sending our response
Wait 300

// Send message
MailSend "Exchange Settings", "my user name", "my password", "recipient@mycompany.com", "some subject", "some text"

// That's it

You may need a more complicated script if you want to calculate response message as a function of some parameters, or read it from some file or may be even retrieved it from a SQL database or get it from some web site, and so on...

Maybe I am missing something but I don't think so:

Your file (I assume that this code is going into the job automation window on new job) will only send a response to a KNOWN SET recipient. I want to RESPOND to the sender of the email. (probably keeping the "thread" previous message at the bottom of my resopnse) This means I do not know ahead of time who the email is going to - this is a "variable" -

Sure would be great if you could give me a file set that does this complete ( listens - waits - constructs new message using email content - sends the message (we use Outlook on a networked T1 so we are always live) so I could SEE this in action and extract and analyse the component pieces -

As you may be able to tell I am very interested in this product and just want to start with it but I am one of those who takes apart working things and figures out the pieces I need to make what I want to happen work.

Could a quick jal (or set of jal(s)) be constructed so I could look at them to do this task. It SURE would help me!

So you don't know the recipient and you want to build some "generic" system to monitor messages, read them, reply, and so on. It sounds like you need a custom solution for your case. Using 24x7 JAL language and email functions you cannot extract the recipient address unless the address is included with the attachment(s) as a text file or something else.

However you can build some program that can communicate to Outlook using Outlook Application Program Interface. 24x7 Scheduler in turn, can lunch this program every time it finds the "monitored" message.

To learn more about Outlook programming please see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base articles
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q181/2/02.ASP
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q182/6/14.ASP

If you would like our consulting services to create such program for you, please contact our sales dept. at sales@softtreetech.com for a quote.

Ok. I found a product "CaTrap" that will take the message, parse it on receipt (into a comma delimited text file) Just thought you might want to know there is a product that does this (19.00).

Now I can work on the other half!

I'll continue the thread later

I think it may be better for the flow of things to just have the 24/7 scheduler
parse and run this as tooo many cooks...

Any idea of cost to produce a job runner to parse, compose, wait and send module?

I guess that for an expirienced programmer it should not take longer than one day. To get an idea, multiply it by the average industry rate + some consulting overhead.
Please email to sales@softtreetech.com with your requirements if you want us to do the job.
