Can't run macro from QAT when emailing from Acrobat

I print QuickBooks invoices to PDFs using the Adobe Acrobat PDF printer, then use the Email PDF button in Acrobat to open a new Outlook mail message with the PDF attached. (Yes, I know QB has a built-in email PDF feature, but the PDFs look like crap, are 10x larger than the Adobe version, and have ugly filenames. QuickBooks is a piece of sh*t, but that's a rant for another day.)

In the new message window, I have a QAT button that calls a VBA macro to populate the message body with some boilerplate text, and it works fine with new messages created directly in Outlook, but not when I use Acrobat's Email PDF.

Any ideas why this is happening? It started with Outlook 2013 (running 2016 now).
