When a mail message is ready to be sent, I want to use the application_itemsend event to add calculated reminders to recipients based on selected key words in the mailbody. Example: When the message contains a term like "tomorrow", the macro should set a recipient reminder on next day 8:00. Now catching the message through the event is no problem, analyzing the content and calculating the reminder date and time is no problem. But what properties (if any) do I have to set in order to send this reminder to the recipients?
I tried to read the already posted questions here. But none seems to provide a solution. Most of them seem to focus on setting a reminder for the sender of the message. But that is not what I'm worried about. That indeed I could resolve by using the itemadd event in the sent items folder. The issue is to have the sent item transport the reminder information to the recipient when sending the message.
What I am reading is, that it can't be done??? I find that hard to believe. If I would manually set the recipient reminder date and time by clicking the follow-up flag in the toolbar, then outlook somehow stores the information and sends it. Are there any hidden properties that can be used?
OL Version I use is 2010. Help on this is very much appreciated.
