W30Y16 – Script to auto forward emails, custom loading GIFs, Google Add-On free ebook, set up / remove proxy settings from your command prompt

Autoforward emails

For those who wants to auto forward emails received in Outlook (work) to their personnal Gmail account, there is a common solution using “Rules” in Outlook but this feature may be disabled by your IT center.

The solution is to add a rule based on a script coded in VBA in your Outlook macros.

First, press Alt+F11 to access to the VBA tool and in the left panel, click on Project1 > Microsoft Outlook Object > This Outlook Session and paste the code below:

Sub SendNew(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

Dim objMsg As MailItem
Set objMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

objMsg.Body = Item.Body
objMsg.Subject = "FW: " & Item.Subject
objMsg.Recipients.Add "joeybronner@gmail.com"


End Sub

Save and close the VBA tool.
Now, you’ll have to apply this script to a rule, so, just follow this few steps…

  1. Select in top ruban Home > Rules > Manage Rules & Alerts
  2. Click New Rule
  3. Click on Apply rule on message I receive, Next
  4. Next (Yes on prompt)
  5. Check Run a script and select the script that you have created above, Next
  6. Finish

Now, you emails will be automatic forwarded.

Custom loading GIFs

If you have to add a loading GIF on your own app, you probably would like to have a custom one. If you type on google for a loading GIF you have the choice between the old style loading or some famous like Google+ loading… Loading.IO is a website where you can choose a loading style and customize for your app colors. And you can export your work in different format:

  • SVG
  • CSS
  • GIF

The Ultimate Guide to Google Sheets

The Zapier team has pulled all of their Google Sheets content together—including the very complete post from earlier this month that included my Translate My Sheet add-on—and turned it into a new free ebook: The Ultimate Guide to Google Sheets. It takes readers first through a detailed intro Google Sheets tutorial, then dives into deeper features that help readers build their own custom tools and apps using Google Sheets’ most powerful features.

You can download this free ebook on these platforms:


Proxy settings

Because it’s something that we have to do some times (in my case it’s especially when I’m working on Raspberry boards), it’s useful to keep these few commands in mind:

set http_proxy=http://your_proxy:your_port
set http_proxy=http://username:password@your_proxy:your_port
set https_proxy=https://your_proxy:your_port
set https_proxy=https://username:password@your_proxy:your_port

And to remove the proxy settings, you only have to launch the same commands, without values:

set http_proxy=
set http_proxy=
set https_proxy=
set https_proxy=

Ladies and Gentlemans, Jack Ma

His career vision is very nice. I like his way of thinking. For young people who are 25 years old (and others!), you must make enough mistakes –you fall, you stand up
