Hi everyone,

I need to set automatically a category to alll email in a IMAP folder. (and

for every new incoming email in this folder)

I've found this code in VBA but it give a category only to the selected

email when the macro is launch.

Sub essai()

Dim MonApply As Outlook.Application

Dim Expl As Explorer

Dim myNameSpace As NameSpace

Dim myFolder As MAPIFolder

Dim myItems As Items

Dim xi As Integer

'object instance

Set MonApply = Outlook.Application 'Application Outlook

'Expl is current folder

Set Expl = ActiveExplorer

'give you all datas embedded

Set myNameSpace = MonApply.GetNamespace("MAPI")

'retreive ID folder to get all messages

Set myFolder =

myNameSpace.GetFolderFromID(Expl.CurrentFolder.EntryID)

'myItems is all items in this folder

Set myItems = myFolder.Items

For xi = 1 To myItems.Count

'this loop should give a category named as the folder name to all

items in folder

myItems.Item(xi).Categories = myFolder.Name

Next xi

End Sub

See the ItemAdd event. An example is available in the VBA help file.
