    Macro for Forwarding Mail (2002)

    I would like to be able to right click on one or more emails in my inbox and then click on a menu item that would automatically populate a new email with those items with the address box already filled in. I regularly copy mail from office to home and vice-versa and the cumulative time this would save over the course of a year would probably mean catching an extra wave or two! Can anyone help me please?

    People who haven't moved to XP/2002 can do this with net folders out of the box. But it went away in 2002.

    You can write a macro that refers to a set of selected items and acts on them (forward, for example). So long as they all go to the same place it shouldn't be a problem. Do you want to view them before they launch, or just shove them out the door? I think that you'd want to run it from a button because modifying menus turns it into a much bigger project.

    Press a button and ship it out would be just fine. Can you get me started?

    Just spotted an earlier post which answers my problem. Works great many thanks but is there any way of turning off the wretched MSoft security box that asks if you will allow the macro to run?

    no, not unless you use exchange server and the admin turns it off.
