How to tell when email finishes downloading?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I use a macro to automatically check email, and would like the macro to do additional things right after messages are downloaded.


Occasionally I get large attachments which take a long time (minutes) to download. I'm currently using a very long delay in the macro before it continues to other tasks, in order to avoid prematurely stopping the email downloads. Of course, the long delay is inconvenient when I don't get any large messages.


Is there a way to tell when downloading is in process or once it stops?


I'm using Outlook Express and the only indicator that I see during download is the "Checking Mail" in the lower right of the window, which I guess I could try to capture as a control but I'd prefer something cleaner, like something in the system that explicitly indicates downloading in progress.


Thanks in advance for any help!
