Automatically import rule/holiday file?


I

ironcladlou

Two things. First, I've got a script set up to automatically import
a .HOL file from the command line by doing outlook.exe /hol
holfile.hol. I'm trying to make the whole deal unattended. Is there
any way to have it just go ahead and import the US holidays without
asking for confirmation?

Second, I've got to get it to create a rule. The rule looks for a
specific word in the header on arrival, and moves it to the Deleted
Items folder. Right now, I'm manually importing a .RWZ file. Any
script-based way to do this?

Could both of these issues be solved by creating a mailbox template of
some sort?

Thanks.

You should be doing this server-side, not client-side.

Thanks for the reply. Forgive the ignorance, but could you give me a
brief walkthrough of how to set that up?

Since I have no idea what you use for a mail server, I have no way to do
that.
