Want to create a drop down list for subject line

Is there a way to create a new Outlook "New Email" template which will provide you with a drop down list of suggested Subject Line entries?

We use Exchange 2003 Server SP2 and Outlook 2003 SP2

I am pretty sure I saw something on EE about this, but for the life of me I cannot find it.

Hi andrefortier7,

Yes, you can create custom forms in Outlook, including custom message forms.  To create a custom form click Tools->Forms->Design a Form.  Select Message as the type of form.

Cheers!

Thanks for the hint, but I can't figure out how to generate a list of drop down subject lines, or allow the user to create their own subject line.

andrefortier7,

Insert a combobox on the compose page of your custom form.  Populate its list with predefined subjects.  Set the combobox property to populate the Subject line when a value is chosen.  If the user chooses an item from the list it'll fill in the subject.  If the user doesn't choose a value from the list, then they can type whatever they want in the subject line.

I am not good at programming, so your answer looks good, but I am not sure how to enter the information into the combo box.

And how can I make all the computers use this new template, currently I have to manually select it

Programming isn't involved.  It's just a matter of creating a form.  Here's a link to page that describes creating a form.
