How to add Voting Buttons onto Microsoft Outlook 2007 E-mail message from an Excel Macro?

Hi Guys, I currently have an Excel Macro that opens Excel tabs into Outlook and sends them as an attachment. I would like the reciever of this e-mail to use Voting Buttons in Outlook to approve or reject the e-mail. Outlook 2007 has a feature in the "Options" menu which shows Voting Buttons. How to I add this into the below VB code so it does it automatically?

Sub Mail_Sheets_Array()
'Working in 2000-2010
    Dim FileExtStr As String
    Dim FileFormatNum As Long
    Dim Sourcewb As Workbook
    Dim Destwb As Workbook
    Dim TempFilePath As String
    Dim TempFileName As String
    Dim OutApp As Object
    Dim OutMail As Object
    Dim sh As Worksheet
    Dim TheActiveWindow As Window
    Dim TempWindow As Window

    With Application
        .ScreenUpdating = False
        .EnableEvents = False
    End With

    Set Sourcewb = ActiveWorkbook

    'Copy the sheets to a new workbook
    'We add a temporary Window to avoid the Copy problem
    'if there is a List or Table in one of the sheets and
    'if the sheets are grouped
    With Sourcewb
        Set TheActiveWindow = ActiveWindow
        Set TempWindow = .NewWindow
        .Sheets(Array("FIEQ Dailies", "SCRIPS JAN 11", "F&R Counterparty", "F&R Write Offs", "CHEAP DIV RIGHTS JAN 11", "Structured- UKSCR")).Copy
    End With

    'Close temporary Window
    TempWindow.Close

    Set Destwb = ActiveWorkbook

    'Determine the Excel version and file extension/format
    With Destwb
        If Val(Application.Version) < 12 Then
            'You use Excel 97-2003

Try:

The actions are defined in the line:

        arrActions = Split("First Action,Another Action,Yet another action", ",")

Modify "First Action,Another Action,Yet another action" as required seperating each string with a comma only.

Try this, just a part of your code:
With OutMail
            .CC = ""
            .BCC = ""
            .VotingOptions = "Yes;No;Maybe;Great!"    'you can include what you want in fact
End With

Hi Tasmant, that works great! What if I want to add a hyperlink into the e-mail header?
