Macro to mark item unread

Hi:

I have a very simple macro that moves the selected item to a folder called

"Archive - email". I also want the macro to mark the selected item "read".

I'm pretty sure I simply need to set "unread" to false and then save the item

- but I can't figure out how to do so. Any help would be appreciated.

Dave

Sub MoveToArchive()

MoveToFolder ("Archive - email")

End Sub

I assume your MoveToFolder() method does something like grabbing

ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)? Just assign that item to an object (or specific

item type such as MailItem, if the macro will always be used on a specific

type of item). Then set the Unread property to false.

Dim obj As Object

Set obj = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

obj.Unread = False

obj.Save

Set obj = Nothing

Perfect. Here's the code I used in case it's of use to anyone else. (One

could also put error handling in to warn the user if the folder doesn't exist

or to create it if it doesn't exist...)

Thanks a million.

' Move the selected message(s) to folder "Archive - email"

Sub MoveToArchive()

Dim obj As Object

Set obj = Application.ActiveExplorer.Selection(1)

obj.UnRead = False

obj.Save

Set obj = Nothing

MoveToFolder ("Archive - email")

End Sub
