Hi,

I'm looking for a macro that in one-click would

- set the From field to a specific email address
- add a specific recipient in the CC:
- set the reply-to field to a specific email address
- insert a defined signature

Ideally the macro would allow multiple "profiles" and would prompt which profile to use when invoking the macro.
Example:

Profile 1 :
- set From: to address1@email.com
- add "addressABC@email.com" in CC:
- set reply-to address1@swift.com
- replace current signature with Sig1

Profile 2 :
- set From: to address2@swift.com
- add "addressABC@email.com" in CC:
- set reply-to address2@swift.com
- replace current signature with Sig2

and so on...

Is this something possible ?

Hi, CCBelux.

Yes, that's possible.  These two procedures will do everything but the signatures.  Once we have the signature issue worked  out in the other question we can use it here to add the signature.
Sub Profile1()
    Dim olkMsg As Outlook.MailItem, olkRcp As Outlook.Recipient
    Set olkMsg = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    With olkMsg
        .SentOnBehalfOfName = "address1@email.com"
        Set olkRcp = .Recipients.Add("addressABC.email.com")
        olkRcp.Type = olCC
        .ReplyRecipients.Add "address1@swift.com"
        .Save
    End With
End Sub

Sub Profile2()
    Dim olkMsg As Outlook.MailItem, olkRcp As Outlook.Recipient
    Set olkMsg = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    With olkMsg
        .SentOnBehalfOfName = "address2@swift.com"
        Set olkRcp = .Recipients.Add("addressABC.email.com")
        olkRcp.Type = olCC
        .ReplyRecipients.Add "address2@swift.com"
        .Save
    End With
End Sub

Thanks a lot it worked like a charm.
What would be the value to add should I wish the macro to set a category as well ?

You're welcome.  To add one or more categories, insert the following line of code anywhere between the WITH ... END WITH lines.

.Categories = "Category1,Category 2"
