    Message Categories (MSO 2003)

    I know you can add categories for a message by using the View / Options screen in a message, but is there a way to add a Categories item to the message form so that the categories would show as you are typing (at bottom of page), or maybe a Categories button to the toolbar?

    Regards,

    Can you customize the message window Toolbar by dragging the Category dropdown from the View Custom dialog?

    Unfortunately, there is no easy way to perform this unless you use VBA (either in the E-Mail form) or creating a Categories button on the toolbar. You may want to play with the Form feature, but to attach it to the New E-Mail button you will probably need to write some VBA... you may want to read up on creating Forms... Creating Forms in Outlook

    Hope this helped... trish

    OK, thanks trish...

    John... BTW...John... I don't see either a View Custom dialog, nor a Categories dropdown on the message window, unless you mean while customizing. Then I haven't (as yet) checked.

    You're correct, it isn't there. Another Outlook annoyance. Here is some basic VBA code you can use to directly pop the Categories dialog, I'll leave it to you to hook it into the Toolbar.

    Private Sub ShowCategoriesDialog()
    If Inspectors.Count Then
    With ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    If .Class = olMail Then .ShowCategoriesDialog
    End With
    End If
    End Sub
