Standard Subject Field in Outlook
« on: April 06, 2006, 02:39:33 AM »
Can anyone help with creating a button to insert a standard phrase into the Subject field of an Outlook 2002 email message? For instance I want to be able to insert "Internet-authorised: " when I email onto the Internet instead of the company LAN.

I believe a macro, with a button linked to it, is the solution.  At the moment, I can't tell you how to do that.  I've never created a macro in Outlook but I see it can not be done as easily in Word and Excel; you can not simply use the Macro Recorder, you have to open the Visual Basic editor and create code there.  I happen to have recently obtained two libary references on Outlook, a book and a DVD.  If I can find time to delve into this further and get an actual macro recorded, I'll post the coding for it.

Yes I also tried to use the Macro recorder and it doesn't work in outlook.  Thanks for trying.
