Changing Subject of forwarded email

    I am looking for a way to automatically filter out incoming email based on the sender, change the subject of that email to, lets say, "x", and forward it to a different address.  I know how to filter the email and forward it, but I'm not sure how to change the subject.  I am using either Outlook Express or Outlook 98.  Is there a way to do it using either one.  Is there another way to do it (web based email account maybe?).  Thank you for any suggestions.

Have you tried doing this in VBA?  I am sure that can be programmed.  You can get programming help at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp

If you want to use VBA you will have to use Outlook 2000 though.  

Yes, it can be programmed in Outlook 2000's VBA.  It wouldn't be that difficult either, but it would require 2000.  If you can possibly use 2000, post back and I'll post some sample code.

yes, I think I can get access to Outlook 2000.  Unfortunately, I haven't used VBA before so I'm not sure what code is needed.

Now, this only works with Outlook 2000...with Outlook 98 there is no way to automatically perform this operation on the application level.  

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
If Left(Item.Subject, 2) = "FW" Then
    Item.Subject = "Test Forward"
End If

End Sub
