    setting 'replied to' status (XP SP2)

    Does anyone know if there is a way to set the 'replied to' status on a message (so it shows the little purple arrow on the mail icon)?

    Sometimes I have to reply to mails using web based mail in a remote location, but when i return to my home PC I want to mark these mails as 'replied to' so they appear just like mails I have replied to using Outlook on my home PC.

    Many thanks,

    AFAIK the way that Outlook - by design - expects you to deal with such things is by use of the Follow Up Flag feature. This, of course, is far more labour-intensive. One of our habitual Outlook coders may be able to come up with some VBA code for you to automate moving to such a set-up.

    Alternatively, it may be possible to reset the status using VBA code but I have not yet checked whether the Object Model available for coding permits that.

    The regular Outlook Object Model that you can tweak with VBA doesn't provide access to those annotations. But there is a mysterious world of Extended MAPI programming that probably has the answer for you. Of course, the question then becomes, is it important enough to dive into those deep waters?

    See <!post=this,309516>this<!/post> related thread on a similar Property and especially HansV's post for how to get to those types of Properties.

    Wow, it looks like I have to get my fingers deep into a very messy VBA pie in order to do this. I think I might just use the flags instead! Thanks for your responses guys.
