Reply / forward with a custom form.

Hi,

I'm using Outlook 2003

I've created a custom form for internal communication to mail send to our

shared mailbox. This form is located on our network drive (saved as .oft).

I'm creating a custom (VBA) Userform to call the .oft mailformat via a

commandbutton. For a new e-mail this works great.

What I would like to achieve is a second button that can be clicked for

replying to a message using that same Custom form format. How would I do this

via VBA code.

I can reply to a message but it uses the standard e-mail format instead of

the custom I would like it to, this is the code I have so far;

Dim mynamespace As NameSpace

Dim myforward As MailItem

Dim myfolder

Set mynamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set myfolder = mynamespace.GetDefaultFolder(6)

Set myforward = GetCurrentItem()

With myforward.Reply

> .Display

End With

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Paul

This is a complicated scenario. You would have to use the same

CreateItemFromTemplate technique to create the new message from the template

*and* also call Reply to create a new reply message, copy all property

values from the reply message to the newly created message, and then call

Recipients.Add as many times as needed to copy all the recipients. I can't

imagine an .oft template that would have so much functionality to justify

that amount of work.
