Execute "accept" hyperlink within an email
I am an independent contract and receive emails from the companies that contract me as mass email blasts. The first contractor to click the "accept" link within the email gets the job. It's tough, because the email goes out to many contractors all at once.
I'm pretty sure that outlook can do this, and if anyone here can help me get this done I'll gladly pay you. It needs to:
1. Screen for the email addresses that send out the mass emails (basically 3 different ones)
2. Click the link - link appears like this: [url removed, login to view]
The OrderID is different each time & the company it comes from will depend (in this case [url removed, login to view]), but the rest of the link is always the same from that company. My idea was to have it screen the links for "[url removed, login to view]" and click that link, but don't really care how it works.
A more advance version would allow for it to:
1. screen for type of appraisal - for example look for text "Drive By BPO", "Interior BPO", or "$70" to allow me to pick and choose the orders myself
2. restrict the number of times it clicks accept each day - or it's possible I will accept too much work to possibly complete
This should be helpful to the programmer:
Search the HTMLBody property of the message for links that fit your criteria. You can use regular expressions, see the links on the VBScript page at left. Or, if they make your brain hurt, use standard text parsing functions like Instr() and Mid().
Once you get the link text, invoke either the IE or Outlook browser, using the syntax described at [url removed, login to view]
I would do it myself, but I have too much work right now and am not a great programmer.
I've attached a copy of the emails I receive for your reference.
I'm currently running outlook 2007 Professional Plus, but I also have Outlook 2003
I would like this completed ASAP
Thanks in advance
