    OLxp select email account with key strokes? (2002)

    Anyone know how to select the proper email account with combo of keystrokes?
    In OL2000 I was able to write a couple of keystroke macros that would let me send all mail without touching the mouse. In 2002 I can't find a way to select the correct mail account without the mouse...
    thanks,

    Tom O'Connell

    Looks like keystrokes will work in Outlook 2002, too. For example, Alt+N 1 for the first account. Were you using SendKeys before? That approach should work here, too, I would think.

    thanks for such a quick reply. The screen shot helps me refine the question...

    Are you using Word for your email editor? that is the problem for me. If I turn word off, I get the "underlined n" again, but using Word takes away this feature for me.

    If there is no workaround for Word, I will have to give up the Auto Text (which I use a LOT) but I know how to fake that by using symbols and substituting AutoCorrect for Auto Text.

    If you know how to make Word work, I'd love to know how...if not ...thanks so much for the answer with a screen shot that helped.

    Tom, I don't use Word as my editor. I spent about 20 minutes poking around and remembered that this MailHeader thing is not a toolbar and therefore cannot be readily manipulated using the CommandBar object model. I don't think I can help you here.
