Hi all !

My first post here.

I need suggestions on how to get outlook to print emails directly.. without any human interaction. I mean as soon as a email comes in, goes to the printer. Is there a macro that can be used to do this? i checked some third party programs, but I just want to check with you guys here to see if we can have a possible solution without using any third part softwares.

Any help would be highly appreciated. ;)

thanks a bunch :tazz:

Hi peterm

Thanks for the reply,

After days after days of banging my head against the wall and searching all the way from third party softwares to visiting macro forums, I found out that you can use the rules wizard in microsoft outlook to enable direct printing from a specific sender and/or containing a specific word or phrase in the subject. There are many other ways you can customize this too. Its simple and effective. ;)

For all other guys out there who are like me, look in the program itself first guys!!

Best regards :tazz:

Noted. and appreciated.

On the same note, I am also searching for a possible fax solution. Here's the scenario, my company has developed an online ordering program (using ASP), now as soon as a customer places an order, the subcribers to our service recieve an email (we configure their microsoft outlook to function that way), but unfortunately,not every subscriber has 24/7 online access. so we need to offer them a faxed order. Any ideas? Efax can't do it because somebody has to manually go and send the fax. I need to have it automated.

Thanks a bunch and best regards.
