    binding macros to the keyboard (Outlook 2000)

    Recently, I've been experimenting with Outlook macros, and I can think of many things that I'd like to do. However I've just had a very frightening 5 minutes vainly looking for a way to bind a macro to a keyboard shortcut (as one can do with Word macros). Please tell me it's possible..!! (and then tell me how..).

    many thanks,

    Hi,
    I'm afraid I don't know of any way to bind macros to key combinations in Outlook 2K. You can however add buttons to a toolbar to run them if that's any use.

    Thanks for the info. I'd have to admit that I'm a bit staggered (and a bit annoyed as well). I had visions of putting together all these nifty macros to process my mail in different ways and hot-key'ing my way through the inbox! Now I'll have to poke some pesky button somewhere, which will really break the flow.

    The option in Outlook 2000 to generate a hotkey is to use the Alt key. If you choose the Text only display and reduce your text to (say) &1, you'll get a hotkey of Alt+1. This will not work with a SendKeys macro. HTH
