I got this code snippet from the above site.
 Dim objOL As Application
        Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
        Dim myItems As Items
        Dim x As Int16

        objOL = New Application()
        objNS = objOL.GetNamespace("MAPI")

        Dim olfolder As MAPIFolder
        olfolder = objOL.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox)

        myItems = olfolder.Items

        For x = myItems.Count To 1 Step -1
            If myItems.Item(x).To.ToString.Contains("Username") Then
                MsgBox(myItems.Item(x).SenderName)
                MsgBox(myItems.Item(x).Subject)
            End If
        Next x

Open in new window


However, what I want to do is when it meets the condition of the to field containts what ever the user's name is, I want it to change the subject of the item (in outlook 2010/2007) to

"In progress " + what ever the original subject name was.

So the part I don't know how to do is the change subject name to something different. Can anyone help me in this please.

Thanks.

Just tried something. Is it this simple.

 
Dim oldsub = myItems.Item(x).Subject
            myItems.Item(x).Subject = "In Progress" & oldsub 
            myItems.Item(x).Save()

yes it should be as Subject is  a writable property. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb176688%28v=office.12%29.aspx

My experience is with CDO / MAPI but works the same.  http://oreilly.com/catalog/cdomapi/chapter/ch07.html  has a writable subject.

read the part about object instantiation as well.
