Rule/action change/append to subject


I would like to automatically change the subject of an e-mail on arrival if it is from a specific e-mail address (in outlook 2007). How can I do this?

Thanks in advance

You will need to create a macro like the one below, then create a rule based on sender and choose run script and select the macro to run.
Sub EditSubject(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

Dim MySubject As String

MySubject = "This is my new subject line..."

MsgBox "Mail message arrived: " & "'" & Item.Subject & "'" & vbCrLf & _
            "Change message subject to: " & "'" & MySubject & "'"

Item.Subject = MySubject


End Sub
