Create Custom Outlook Macros/Code

I want to create a custom "rule" in Outlook 2003 (Win XP os)

I want to write a macro that:

1. Reads an email when it comes in
2. If it's from a certain person, changes the color of the email to red
3. Adds the word "Alert" to the email subject line
4. Moves the email to the "deleted Items" folder

Do you have some basic knowledge of VBScripting? It will not be extrememly difficult, but you need to know how to write and most importantly where to write such code.

Also, your requirement seems to be pretty contradictory. You are looking forward to change the contents of a mail which you intend to delete. Doesn't that sound illogical?

If it is not very imporatnt for you to change the contents of the email, my suggestion would be to create a rule using the standard method built-into the Outlook client.
