Hi,

We are currently working on stream lining alot of our relative tasks and one of them is sending a standard reply to emails that come into our mail boxes via a macro.

We want the macro to reply to the sender with a new subject line, and a standard message body that we can define with in the macro.

Currently we have it working on forwarding but we are unable to get it working on the reply with a set body text.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how we can do this?

We are using Outlook 2000 and the macro editor with in it.

thanks david jacques

Hi cmrecruitment,

Are you forwarding with a macro?  If so, then post the code I can show you how to modify it to send a reply.  

Cheers!
If you are trying to reply with a semi-custom message, you may want to try setting up a rule that replies using a template, I'm not sure what all you want your macro to do, but if it's just a bit of customization, this is the way to go.

Tools > Rules and Alerts > New Rule
Construct the rule to run based on your own criteria, but when you select an Action, choose "Reply using a specific template".  This allows you to choose a template that you can create that has fields to further customize the message beyond boilerplate text.

    Dim myFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim myRecipient As Outlook.Recipient
    Dim myItem As MailItem
    MsgTxt = "You have selected items from: "
   
    Set myOlExp = myOlApp.ActiveExplorer
    Set myOlSel = myOlExp.Selection
    Set myItem = myOlSel.Item(1)
    For x = 1 To myOlSel.Count
              MsgTxt = myItem.SenderName
