Actions are used to
perform a specific action with message or with results of its processing.
You can write results to a text file or to Access, MS SQL or MySQL databases,
send an email using results of processing (it can be used for example,
as autoresponder or just to inform about specific email you got). Also
using actions you can extract attachment from emails and delete them
(delete attachments works with Microsoft Outlook only). And also you
can delete message or copy or move them between folders (copy and move
functions work only for Microsoft Outlook).
Actions are executed
one by one in the order of their listing.
To add action: Select
'Actions', press right mouse button and select 'Add Action'. After action
is created you can always edit it by double clicking on it or selecting
it and using right mouse button and selecting 'Properties'. To delete
action select it, press right mouse button and choose 'Delete Action'
The wizard will show
On the first page
you can select what type of action you want. The available values are:
Write to File
- saves results to a text file
Write to Database
- saves results to a database - Access, MS SQL or MySQL
- extracts attachments from emails and optionally delete attachments
- using results of processing
- Delete, Copy or Move a message to a different folder
On the next page you
can specify settings for the action you have chosen
Write to file -
on this page you should specify a file where you want to write information
from processors and if you want to overwrite it (it will be overwritten
each time the rule is processed, so use it carefully). And also you
need to choose what processors you want to save and in what order).
You can see at the bottom of the screen how it will be presented in
Write to Database - on the first page you are invited to choose
a Database - Access, MS SQL, MySQL
On the next screen
you should choose server (for MS SQL and MySQL), database and optionally
enter username and/or password. After that press 'Get tables' to get
all available table from the chosen database and then select a desired
table and press 'Get fields'. On the bottom of the screen you will be
presented all fields, their type and also additional column for processors.
Just click on that field row in the processor column and you'll be able
to chose a processor you want to have in this field
- you just need to choose a folder where you want to save all extracted
attachments. Optionally you can delete those attachments from messages
saving space in your message files (works only in Microsoft Outlook).
The software doesn't overwrite attachments with the same names, instead
of that it add a digit to each new attachment with identical names -for
example, test.txt, test.txt(1), test.txt(2) etc.
- use this
action to send emails using results of processing. You can enter processors
to 'Message', 'Subject', 'To' and 'From' fields. To do it just put the
cursor where you want to insert a processor, press 'Insert Processor'
button and choose from available processors. This action can be used
as autoresponder too.

move functions work only in Microsoft Outlook)
