At $work we use Outlook with an Exchange server for our email. Recently I've taken on system administration tasks for my group. Any email sent to root on our servers goes to me.
One of the servers is running OpenNMS (apparently it's not configured correctly). OpenNMS keeps sending email to me with subjects like 'Notice #XXXX: node some.node.domain.local down' and 'RESOLVED: Notice #XXXX: node some.node.domain.local down'. Some days I get 15 or 20 notices (plus the corresponding resolved notices). Other days I get 50 - 75 notices (plus the resolved). (More often than not, the downtime is super short and I get two notices and two resolves for the same system in one minute).
Until I can finish configuring OpenNMS (so that it's not so darn sensitive) I'd like to set up Outlook to automatically mark the notice and corresponding resolve as read. Outlook's rules don't allow for wildcards or capturing or anything that resembles a 21st century feature. I've done some Excel macros in the past but I've never needed to muck with VBA in Outlook so I really don't know where to start (other than what I've found doing a Google for it). I also downloaded a few sample scripts for doing Outlook inbox/message manipulation in Perl.
Are there any Outlook gurus reading this? Do you have any suggestions?
