Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can’t attach a folder to an email. You can only attach files. You need to either attach the contents of the folder, or zip the folder and send the compressed file.

    Yahoopap posted this on my blog. I'm reposting it here to respond. Thank Denny for your thoughts on my question concerning attaching email folders to a group name. Let me explain first, I should had worded the question better. What I’m trying to accomplish first, 1. Take in job leads that are found by using search agent, move the leads the right inbox jobs folders by using inbox rules. 2. Why zipping will not work, the peoples these leads are being sent to are not computer literacy. It’s a major effort just to get them to go out the Internet and reading their emails not along in using the Internet to find work. these people are homeless veterans trying to get back living and finding work. 3. Then what I do is attached an item,( the inbox job folders). I using Outlook 2007 mail service to send all emails using the group list name(which contain email address of those persons looking for this category of jobs. 4. What I really would like to do, is to developed a script or something that would accomplish this in one process. I’m more then willing to learn, what I need is someone who show me how to take the right steps. I have a background in software development. Thank Denny

    I see a couple of possible options here. 1. Manually attach the emails in the folder to a single email and send that email with all the other emails as attachments to the distribution list. 2. Setup the rules to not only sort the data, but to forward the emails to the distribution lists as well. 3. Use some backend Exchange programming to write some code which handles the forwarding of messages. If I was the one building this solution I would use option #2. Setup the rules to not only sort the emails in to the correct folders but have the rule also forward (or redirect depending on your needs) the emails to the distribution list for final sending to the users.
