    One question: this method assume that all folders content will support the filter? I ran this and when processing the folder “contacts’ an error was thrown as within this folder the property SenderName is unknown.
    Andrew, I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank you. Your videos are just excellent !!

    Andrew I am a follower, your job is just outstandingly good!
    As feedback: Today I was thinking that it would attract more viewers if you showed the code working at the beginning of the video before teaching how to build it.

    Hey Andy, awesome video as always do you think you could create a video on Outlook VBA as well? where one could write code in the Outlook and let's say if certain email comes then some details pertaining to that email gets saved on an Excel sheet and keeps updating.
