Using python and win32com to write outlook rules

mabel juhi 1 month ago updated by Rafał Strzaliński (Senior Engineer) 1 month ago 2

I've been trying really hard to make it work in python 3.7 and outlook 365. A related question here and the VBA documentation is here. I can't manage to solve it.

Everything in the code is working fine, except the two lines commented out in the code.

Please, help!

import win32com.client as win32

o = win32.Dispatch("Outlook.Application")

musterman = o.GetNamespace("MAPI").Folders['musterman@outlook.at']

dest_folder = musterman.Folders["Posteingang"].Folders["Ich"]
colRules = o.Session.DefaultStore.GetRules()
oRule = colRules.Create("New Rule", 0)

oFromCondition = oRule.Conditions.From
oFromCondition.Enabled = True
oFromCondition.Recipients.Add("john@email.com")
oFromCondition.Recipients.ResolveAll

oMoveRuleAction = oRule.Actions.MoveToFolder
oMoveRuleAction.Enabled = True                 #not working
oMoveRuleAction.Folder = dest_folder           #not working

colRules.Save()
