there is an old discussion in the forum which is currently locked which posed a question about how to

Record opened emails for reopening later​

the link is Record opened emails for reopening later

while the issue is mostly obselete because you can open emails via outlook/restore function or via setting the new 2020 option of outlook to open based on closed emails it iseems the issue still occurs in certain crash situations. (i.e. the ost file crashes for some reason) and then you can find anything to re-open.

was there ever a solution to this case using Visual Basic? all i need a any type of flag/category of emails that are opened and never closed.

thanks

I'm not aware of any solution -- the vba would need to create a list of the messages as you opened or closed them.

The restore switch will do it if you use a version that doesn't have the option - but it has the same limitations and while it works most of the time, its not 100%.
