My OS is windows 7 and I use Outlook 2007.  Like everyone I guess, I too receive lots of emails, and I am trying to automate the process of filing them into the various folders and moving them out of the Inbox.  
1.  Can an incoming email be edited.  i.e. Can I open it, and then add say some text at the beginning of the email.  
If NO, can this be done thru code.  
I am thinking of then adding a ID number, and then when all the incoming emails in the Inbox have been so inserted with a code, and then run a macro that would move the emails one by one into the respective folders as specified by the Code at the beginning of the email.
Eg. if the email has a code of GEPR,
Then it would be moved to the Folder Called "GE Credit Card", and the subfolder "Payment",. where "Payment" would be the final destination.
Is there a better way of doing this thing or some other way.  
It is a painful task of filing each email one by one to the respective folders, lots of clicks.
thank u.
