Good morning,
Ive written quite a few VBA scripts in the past which deals with email messages when they are recived, but Id like to make one so when I change the status of the follow up to an email, I can move the email to the archive folder.

Anyone have any ideas what method fires when an email changes its follow up status?

Hi, tonelm54.

"Anyone have any ideas what method fires when an email changes its follow up status?"
Outlook does not have a separate event for a change to each field.  Instead it has a single event that fires when an item changes.  I need to know which version of Outlook you're using since the events are different between versions.

Sorry, Outlook 2007. Is there any information saying what events fire at what times, as I use Visual Basics IDE a lot you have 'page load', 'page activiave', 'button_mouseover' etc, but cannot find anything like it in vba :-(

Outlook's online VBA help has a complete list of all the available events.  For Outlook 2007 I recommend the PropertyChange event.  It receives the name of the property that was changed which will allow you to act if the property changes was the follow up status.

Expand "Events" in the left-hand pane.
