Macro to speed email creation

I need to use outlook to send the same pdf file as an attachment to any

one who requests it. All I want to do is this. After the new mail form

is launched (by clicking on the recipient's email address) I want a

button, or something, that will automatically insert the subject and

body text (which will always be the same for every mail) attach the pdf

(which will always have the same filename and be stored in the same

location), and send the mail.

I'm sure this is very easy and that I'm missing something obvious but

I've searched for hours and can't find what I need. Any help would be

very much appreciated.

You can access the email via

Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

It has a Body, and a Subject property, and an Attachments.Add funtion. For

an example see the VBA help file.

Hello Michael

I'm still stuck. Thankyou for your reply which has enabled me to write

a macro that works but I can't find a way to attach it to a button on

the email ribbon. Since I only want a short message to be automated it

does not save time if I have to open developer and run the macro

manually.

Is there a way to but a button on the message ribbon that will run the

macro directly? I still feel like I'm missing something... Thankyou for

your help. I'm a complete novice at this stuff.

Best regards

Steve

For instance, for OL07 right click the toolbar of the email window, then

Edit Quick Access Toolbar (or similar). Select macros, then drag the macro's

name to the pane right hand.
