Greetings,

How can I create a new mail item from the active inspector current item?

Thank you

Please provide more details on what you want to do. In other words, what does

the current item have to do with the new item you want to create?

Sue,

Many thanks for your reply.

What I'm actually trying to do is to come up with a routine that will forward a mail item to a friend without the "FWD: " in the subject and without the "From,Sent,To,Subject" lines in the message.

One suggestion that I received was to create a new mail item from the current mail item and I've been trying to do that, but so far I've been unsccessful.

So you essentially want to resend the item, so that the friend sees it as

coming from you? Outlook has no programmatic way to do that directly. If you

just make a copy of the item (with the MailItem.Copy method), and try to

address and send that, you may get an error that you can't send on behalf of

the original sender. Another approach would be to use SaveAs to save the item

as an .msg file, then use CreateItemFromTemplate to create a new item from

that saved original.
