Default Install Outlook 2000 program into Outlook 2010

I have a need program (emailtemplate/emailtemplates.com) I use in XP with Outlook 2000. The vendor went out of business and sooner or later I will need to update. It uses RegEx to parse a highlighted email and rewrite it in a new email.



I upgraded to Windows 10, but Outlook 2000 would not install.

I tried to install the needed program in Outlook 2010, which appeared to install without error, but it does not show up on the ribbon, nor has it created a folder.

Is there any chance to get this working? A switch to tell 2010 to accept a 2000 addon or something? Or perhaps another application that that allows you to write an email parser and write a new email?

It might make more sense to tell us exactly what this old add-in did with RegEX and the rewritten message so we can establish the viability of recreating what it did.

Sorry if I was not clear that "emailtemplates.com" is the link for the application. The website is still there in full. Only the contact no longer works and no one is home.

When you install it creates a folder with templates (basically just emails) and links to each template. You chose an email and click on the icon that says Reply from Templates and it list each template n the template folder. You chose one and it runs that template against the email or emails highlighted.

For example a simple template would be something like the following:

<et>
set text [et message body]
set text [split $text " \n\r,()\t:;"*<>+^&%'"]
foreach word $text {
if [string match *?@?* $word] {
et set recipient [string trim $word ".\]\[\}\{()"]
}
}
et set subject "Memo."
</et>

I've just received a memo from &sender_name;. I think you might want to take a look at it.
&body;

&my_name;
&my_email;

But they can get much more complex like completely searching and parsing an email and then opening a blank email and write what ever you want, including anything you parsed from the original email.

You could use it to read and parse sales order emails from your shopping cart and send neat formatted orders to your fulfillment house.

Whether the folder appears to have been created might depend on where you're expecting to see it vs where Windows 10 & Office 2010 think it should go.

As for not creating a ribbon entry, that's undoubtedly because anything written for Office 2000 used menu bars, not the ribbon. Again, that doesn't mean the program didn't install correctly. You may need to manually add a shortcut to the macro on either the Ribbon or the QAT.
