Relating to question... http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_21916262.html

Would like to change this code so I can use 3 seperate folders, with 3 seperate template replies.

Private WithEvents olkFolder As Outlook.Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
    'Change the path of the folder to watch
    Set olkFolder = OpenMAPIFolder("\FolderName\SubFolderName").Items
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Quit()
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olkFolder_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With olkMessage
        .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
        'Change the subject as desired
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        'Change the message format as desired
        .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
        'Change the message body as desired
        .HTMLBody = "My message"
        .Send
    End With
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub

'Credit where credit is due.
'The code below is not mine.  I found it somewhere on the internet but do
'not remember where or who the author is.  The original author(s) deserves all
'the credit for these functions.
Function OpenMAPIFolder(szPath)
    Dim app, ns, flr, szDir, i
    Set flr = Nothing
    Set app = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    If Left(szPath, Len("\")) = "\" Then
        szPath = Mid(szPath, Len("\") + 1)
    Else
        Set flr = app.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder
    End If
    While szPath <> ""
        i = InStr(szPath, "\")
        If i Then
            szDir = Left(szPath, i - 1)
            szPath = Mid(szPath, i + Len("\"))
        Else
            szDir = szPath
            szPath = ""
        End If
        If IsNothing(flr) Then
            Set ns = app.GetNamespace("MAPI")
            Set flr = ns.Folders(szDir)
        Else
            Set flr = flr.Folders(szDir)
        End If
    Wend
    Set OpenMAPIFolder = flr
End Function

Function IsNothing(obj)
  If TypeName(obj) = "Nothing" Then
    IsNothing = True
  Else
    IsNothing = False
  End If
End Function

I had a go myself but couldn't get it to work.

Good morning, Alan-Yeo.  

That's pretty simple.  Only requires a minimal change.  

Private WithEvents olkFolder1 As Outlook.Items, _
    WithEvents olkFolder2 As Outlook.Items, _
    WithEvents olkFolder3 As Outlook.Items

Private Sub Application_Startup()
    'Change the path of the folder to watch
    Set olkFolder1 = OpenMAPIFolder("\FolderName\SubFolderName").Items
    Set olkFolder2 = OpenMAPIFolder("\FolderName\SubFolderName").Items
    Set olkFolder3 = OpenMAPIFolder("\FolderName\SubFolderName").Items
End Sub

Private Sub Application_Quit()
    Set olkFolder1 = Nothing
    Set olkFolder2 = Nothing
    Set olkFolder3 = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olkFolder1_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With olkMessage
        .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
        'Change the subject as desired
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        'Change the message format as desired
        .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
        'Change the message body as desired
        .HTMLBody = "My message"
        .Send
    End With
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olkFolder2_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With olkMessage
        .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
        'Change the subject as desired
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        'Change the message format as desired
        .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
        'Change the message body as desired
        .HTMLBody = "My message"
        .Send
    End With
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub olkFolder3_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
    With olkMessage
        .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
        'Change the subject as desired
        .Subject = "My Subject"
        'Change the message format as desired
        .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
        'Change the message body as desired
        .HTMLBody = "My message"
        .Send
    End With
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub

Leave the OpenMAPIFolder() and IsNothing() as they are.

superb, I tried something simliar to the above but mine didnt work :|

Anyway, this will be roled out across our company, just worried people might drop the emails into the wrong folder, which means a rejection email could be sent to them.

Could you possibly do me another script that will ask a confirmation message...

"Are you sure you want to send an application accept email to.... <RECEIPIENT>"

If the user clicks no could the email that was dropped into the folder be moved back to the inbox?

Many thanks! you've been most helpful.

No problem.  Change each of olkFolder_ItemAdd subs to look like this:

Private Sub olkFolder1_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to send an application accept email to " & Item.SenderEmailAddress & "?", vbYesNo, "Confirm Send") = vbYes Then
        Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
        With olkMessage
            .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
            'Change the subject as desired
            .Subject = "My Subject"
            'Change the message format as desired
            .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
            'Change the message body as desired
            .HTMLBody = "My message"
            .Send
        End With
    End If
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub

Just tested the script, works a charm except it doesn't seem to move the email back to the inbox if you select no?

Sorry, I missed that part.  Use this version instead.

Private Sub olkFolder1_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim olkMessage As Outlook.MailItem
    If MsgBox("Are you sure you want to send an application accept email to " & Item.SenderEmailAddress & "?", vbYesNo, "Confirm Send") = vbYes Then
        Set olkMessage = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)
        With olkMessage
            .Recipients.Add Item.SenderEmailAddress
            'Change the subject as desired
            .Subject = "My Subject"
            'Change the message format as desired
            .BodyFormat = olFormatHTML
            'Change the message body as desired
            .HTMLBody = "My message"
            .Send
        End With
    Else
        Item.Move Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
    End If
    Set olkMessage = Nothing
End Sub
