Automating the selection of email accounts upon adding email addre

I'm new to programming for Outlook - I'm not even sure this is the right

forum.

Is it possible to associate an email account to a person in your contacts

with Outlook 2007? - I have personal email accounts and business email

accounts. Everytime I add Thomas Smith to the To input, I'd like Outlook to

recognize it and set the account to from which the email will be sent to my

business account. If I'm sending an email to my brother, I want it to send it

from my personal account. - All while not having to manually select the

account, because I don't always remember.

In the event that both professional and personal contacts are on a single

email, I'd like Outlook to fire up an alert box reminding me to select the

correct email account.

Firing an alert box to remind me to select the correct account would be an

option if there is no way to associate the contact with a specific account.

Thanks in advance
 
For Outlook 2007 you can use the MailItem.SendUsingAccount object property

for that. You can select from the Accounts collection the appropriate

account to use to send based on the contact being sent to. For that you'd

get the Recipients collection of the email and get each Recipient You can

then use the Recipient.AddressEntry.GetContact() method to get the

ContactItem for that recipient object and check it for which account to use.

See the Object Browser in the Outlook VBA project for information on those

methods and properties and for sample code for them.
