Hi Everyone,

I'm currently using extract method to get my sent mail from the sent items from outlook going to excel on a weekly basis.
Just want to ask if there's a way that "After clicking Send button in outlook it will automatically goes to my target excel file in this format:
- Subject
-Sent to
So that i can track my actions/sent mails on a daily basis.

Thank you in advance.
