I was wondering if it is possible in Outlook to create a Macro that files an email in whatever folder the first email in a conversation was stored in.
As with so many people I get too many emails and filing them in the correct folder takes up a lot of time. If all of them arrive more or less together I can use the conversation view to show all the messages in my inbox by conversation and move them to a folder together. But this will not work if I have already filed a message to a folder. When that happens I have to find the original message, see what folder it is in and then manually file the new message from the inbox to this correct folder.
What I would love, is to be able to click on a button which checks to see which conversation a new email belongs to (if any) and then files the new email to whatever folder the first email in that conversation had originally been sent to.
This way I reckon I could save a lot of time filing messages and spend more time doing the stuff I am paid to do!
I've tried to read up about the topic properties in Outlook, but I am not a VBA person and have the feeling that I am way out of my league, hence the cry for assistance.
