Capturing text from the body of email message in Outlook

I have a web application that has functionality to reset a users password if forgotten and send a new password to the users email. Using CDO, TC can send messages. With CDO or any other available Microsoft API's, is there a way to extract text from the body of the Outlook message, search the extracted text for a particular pattern using regular expressions and store results in variable? The idea is to capture the new password and pass it back to the test and log back into the web application with the new password.

Thanks Alex! That was a great help. Now I have to figure out how to open the message and extract the text from the body of the message. If I'm able to figure out, I will post the solution.

Hi David,



Maybe I missed something in your question, but for my Outlook 2007 the following lines (as per referenced Aaron's message)

    Set toolEmail = inbox.Items(i)

    Call Log.Message(toolEmail.Subject, toolEmail.Body)

post e-mail subject and body (in the plain text format) to the log. There is also .HTMLBody property if you are interested in the html format.
