I know nothing about VBA in outlook but I need to create a macro. I

need to be able to highlight an email in my inbox and start the macro

which will reply to all for the highlighted email with a simple

message like "got it". How do I do this? Is there another way

besides a macro?

thanks

Sub DoReply()

Dim itm as Object

Dim reply as Outlook.MailItem

On Error Resume Next

Set itm = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

If itm.Class = olMail Then

Set reply = itm.ReplyAll

reply.Body = "Got it" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf & reply.Body

reply.Send

End If

Set itm = Nothing

Set reply = Nothing

End Sub

If you need basics on writing Outlook macros, see

Is it possible to maintain the formatting of the original email in the

reply? The reply I am producing loses the spacing, text size, and

border lines from the original.

thanks

The Body property contains only the plain text representation of the item

body. If you want formatting, you need to work with HTMLBody and proper HTML

tags (instead of constants like vbCrLf).
