Project Description

We require a simple vbscript that can flag (notify with text) unflagged emails in a Lotus Notes client. (using OLE)

Basically the scenario is this - we have a shared mailbox which is accessible by all members of our group. At present, we have have a person delegating those emails by manually right-clicking on it and adding a flag with their name in the comment box. We would like to automate the process by having a script/program do that. We already made a program with a GUI for the purpose, but none of us have any experience with the Lotus Notes API. We plan to call the script from the program/GUI. Therefore, the script has to be modular and capable of accepting various command-line parameters.

For reference, this script works just fine [url removed, login to view] for us, so if your script is similar (uses the same interfaces etc) then I know it will work in our environment.

We also require basic commenting on the script so that we can modify and extend it as per our requirements in the future.

-------------------------------
Now I want the script to support command-line parameters so that it works like the examples below:

"[url removed, login to view] FlagOldest John" -> Should flag the oldest unflagged email in the inbox to "John", and it should return a standard exit code (0 of success, 1 if no more unflagged emails, 2 if there was an error etc). It should also print the sender, subject and the time of the email, to stdout.

"[url removed, login to view] GetTotalCount" -> Total the total number of emails in the inbox .

"[url removed, login to view] GetUnflaggedCount" -> Return the number of unflagged emails

"[url removed, login to view] GetFlagged John" -> Should print to stdout all the emails (sender, subject, date separated by commas, in a single line), with a counter at the top indicating the number of emails which have been flagged for "John" (count could also be indicated by the exit code)

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Bid Selection criteria:

Obviously, you need to have experience with Lotus Notes and VBA / VBS. Any examples of prior work will help. If you can show a sample script like the one I posted that can say, get the flagged email count (for example) that'll be excellent, and I will select you immediately.

If you're selected and I feel you are the right person for the task - there might be more related work later on as well!

Good luck, and please feel free to ask any questions.
