    Outlook XP macro start help (Outlook XP)

    All I would like to do is to show (in a message box) the sender's e-mail address for a selected message. And I would like this macro to show up on the pop-up menu when you right-click on a message.

    Is this even possible ? btw, I really dislike not being able to record a macro ! Hopefully this 'feature' is 'fixed' in the next release of outlook.

    Although a MailItem has a .SenderName property, it doesn't always return the actual address. For that, see <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/starpost.gif> <!post=Retrieve Sender Address in Outlook (Outlook 2000),116277>Retrieve Sender Address in Outlook (Outlook 2000)<!/post>.

    Oh, you had to go and make it difficult!! I'm not sure you can customize that menu. I think I've tried, but I can't remember for sure. If you'll settle for a shortcut key, you can (1) add the macro to a toolbar button, and (2) assign an accelerator key (preferably one which doesn't conflict with anything else) by using an ampersand in the button's caption (e.g., &Sender Address) (Alt+S doesn't appear to have any meaning in the Inbox).
