Hello everybody,

I have the following organization of messages :


1 After message arrives – transfer it mannualy to folder „to-be-distributed-manually”

2 I change folder to „to-be-distributed-manually”

3 On that folder I run 64 rules

4 Done.



The problem appeares when I want to know which message was sent by which rule.

In our orgazation it’s crucial to know that.

How to write (by VBA) that information into the message?

(I know that's possible - but how?)

It would be difficult to impossible to do it using VBA. Add assign a category to each rule.

If the rules are simple, you could replace them using VBA and add a tag to the subject. (Complicated rules might be harder to do using VBA).

Thank you Diane,
Unfortunately assigning a category for messages which are re-distributed (as I mentioned - they are located in foder "to-be-distributed-manually") doesn't work.
On the other hand it's of course a good solution, but not in my case.
When mesage comes I assing category and move messages to folder "to-be-distributed-manually" next I run rules on the same messages but they don't contain an info about category ! Meanwhile outlook is loosing category info.
Why ? I don't understand...

The sent messages lose the category?

Try setting a registry key -

I didn't recive permission to modify registry (security reasons) on our network. Unfortunately.
Good solution , but not for me.
I give up. Thanks for answers.
