I would like to create a macro or a script that would copy the information in the subject of an email and paste it into the to: of an email.

We have a process by which someone will send an email and the subject will contain a fax number that we would like to automatically send as the recipient.

That is doable. Do you want to outlook to do this automatically as messages arrive? Is the fax # the only thing in the subject field?

See To Forward the message body to another address - you'd use

objMsg.Recipients.Add item.subject

Yes I would like for it to be automatic. Would this be the script?

Sub SendNew(Item As Outlook.MailItem)

Dim objMsg As MailItem

Set objMsg = Application.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\path\to\test-rule.oft")

' If the address you want to send to is not saved in the template,

' set the addresses here 'objMsg.Recipients.Add "alias@domain.com"

objMsg.Recipients.Add Item.Subject

objMsg.display End Sub

End Sub

Mostly. This probably needs changed though:

Set objMsg = Application.CreateItemFromTemplate("C:\path\to\tes t-rule.oft")

Are you using the contents of the incoming message in the fax? You either need to copy it to a new message or forward the message.

This is one possible replacement for that line:

Set objMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

objMsg.Body = Item.Body

In response to your question above, I will be forwarding the body of the original email as the body of the new email.

Is this what the script should look like?

Dim objMsg As MailItem

Set objMsg = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

objMsg.Body = Item.Body

' If the address you want to send to is not saved in the template,

' set the addresses here 'objMsg.Recipients.Add "
alias@domain.com"

objMsg.Recipients.Add Item.Subject

objMsg.display End Sub

End Sub

Also, where can I find a refernce of the Outlook 2010 field names and their definition? For example where would I be able to find what the subject of an email is referenced as within VB?

That will work (except for the 2 end sub's in your code sample), if the messages are HTML and have links, you may need to use HTMLBody instead of just Body.

objMsg.HTMLBody = Item.HTMLBody

The object model help is linked on the View menu - that has all the fields. plus, as you start typing, field names should come up. for example, typing item then the period (.) should bring up a little menu to choose fields & objects from. The list is contextual, based on what is before the .
