 automatically accept assigned tasks

I'm trying to find out if there's an Outlook setting to automatically accept
assigned tasks (there's one for Meeting Requests under Resources).

Or if there's a way to do it in VBscript from the Outlook Form.

Thanks for any ideas.

I think you can code a ItemAdd event for your task folder,
and in that event you should use the TaskItem.Respond to
accept the task, and then TaskItem.Send method to send an
answer.

Sounds promising. I looked around a bit but can't figure out where to code
the ItemAdd event. A COM add-in? VBscript on the server? I've done lots of
VBA programming, but I'm not sure where to put the Exchange 2000 rule/event.

Thanks for any guidance.

Can't you just write the code in Outlooks' Visual basic
editor? I think that would work if it's only for your
tasks. Somethin like this would work there:

Public WithEvents WithEventItems As Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
    Dim oNameSpace  As NameSpace
    Dim oRecip      As Recipient

    Set oNameSpace = GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set oRecip = oNameSpace.CreateRecipient("Damien Vryce")
    oRecip.Resolve

    Set WithEventItems = oNameSpace.GetSharedDefaultFolder
(oRecip, olFolderDrafts).Items
End Sub

Private Sub WithEventItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
        'Your code comes here
End Sub

That did it.

Took me a while to figure out that I had to have Macros enabled, but after
that it worked great.

Thanks for the help.
