Reply to original sender, not to forwarder ?

Hi,

is it possible to have a macro or something that will do the following:

When I have a forwarded message selected in the Inbox message list and

invoke the macro, to have a reply window where in the TO: field appears the

email of the original sender (and not that of the forwarder).

Ideal would be this to happen automatically when I click Reply, if the

subject starts with FW:

Thanks

A forward like that doesn't retain any properties for the original sender.

That is only preserved, if at all, as text in the body of the forwarded

message. You'd need to parse the string value grabbed from item.Body or

item.HTMLBody and look for something that looks like an email address and

hope that it's from the original sender.
