mail attaching automation

Postby mytamhuyet » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:51 am

Hello! I am a sys admin in a small firm, and my users send me files in network shared folder say N:/FORSEND and they name the files an an adress for example:refer09@gmail.com.doc or 01inf23.xls and they call me by phone because only i have an access for intranet mail server wich uses Lotus Notes mail agent, so want to automate following task with robotask:

1)monitor the folder FORSEND
2)when any file appears there, get it's name without extansions
3)switch to Lotus Notes and create new note and attach the current file
4)and somehow paste filename without extansion into adress row and send ENTER key (to initialize distant server)
5)and move sent file to another folder called SENT

------------------------------------------------------
i tried to solve this routine with MouseRobot tool but i couldn't
whether it is possible to do it with RoboTask

If you want to use mouse and keyboard simulation then pay attention that system ignores keyboard and mouse simulation in locked session
This is the property of system security. Maybe you can send the email message trough SMTP protocol. This can solve the problem.
RoboTask have internal action Send Email
1)monitor the folder FORSEND

look at File Monitor trigger
2)when any file appears there, get it's name without extansions

you can extract name by using ExtractFileNameNoExt system variable
3)switch to Lotus Notes and create new note and attach the current file
4)and somehow paste filename without extansion into adress row and send ENTER key (to initialize distant server)

use Send Email instead if this
5)and move sent file to another folder called SENT

Use Copy/Move File action
