"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sub ChangeImportance()
 Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem
 Set myItem = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
 myItem.Importance = olImportanceHigh ' = 2, olImportanceLow = 0, olImportanceNormal =1
End Sub
