Copying messages from one folder to another

I need some code to copy any email messages that I have highlighted to a specific folder.  I can find many code snippets for moving messages, but I don't want to move them I want to copy them.   I found this code from BlueDevil:  

Sub CopyMessages(strFolder As String)
    Dim olkItem As Object, _
        olkFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Set olkFolder = OpenMAPIFolder(strFolder)
    If TypeName(olkFolder) = "MAPIFolder" Then
        For Each olkItem In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
            olkItem.UnRead = False
            olkItem.Save
            olkItem.Move olkFolder
        Next
    End If
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
    Set olkItem = Nothing
End Sub


It seems as though this may be what I need except where it says "olkItem.Move olkFolder" I need the command for copying.  

This is my first foray into vba for outlook.  Yikes!

Thanks.

Yes, that's the one I got the code I had in the first place.  It only moves it, not copies it. Thanks for trying though!

Hi, shopsleep.

This should do it.  You can't copy directly to another folder.  The Copy method makes a copy and then we have to use the Move method to get the copy to the other folder.

Sub CopyMessages(strFolder As String)
    Dim olkItem As Object, _
        olkCopy As Object, _
        olkFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Set olkFolder = OpenMAPIFolder(strFolder)
    If TypeName(olkFolder) = "MAPIFolder" Then
        For Each olkItem In Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection
            olkItem.UnRead = False
            olkItem.Save
            Set olkCopy = olkItem.Copy
            olkCopy.Move olkFolder
        Next
    End If
    Set olkFolder = Nothing
    Set olkItem = Nothing
    Set olkCopy = Nothing
End Sub
