So you need to reply to a message and change the subject, then move the original message? Do you need to also change the original message subject?

It's fairly easy to do and i have macro samples at slipstick.com that do each - individually. They just need ot be put together.

Public Sub ChangeAndFile()
    Dim objOL As Outlook.Application
    Dim oItem As MailItem
    Set objOL = Outlook.Application
    Set oItem = objOL.ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1)
    Set oResponse = oItem.Reply
oResponse.subject = "Keyword "  & oitem.subject
oResponse. display

' if you also need to change the original subject
oItem.Subject = "Keyword "  & oitem.subject

' moving to folder under default inbox
oItem.Move (Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Folders("Move")

   Set objOL = Nothing
End Sub

if you need to use a different folder, see Working with VBA and non-default Outlook Folders
