  • 1.  Flag Email Outlook

    Posted 05-14-2020 11:14
    Hi all

    I am looking to create a code stage that given Mail ID, Outlook Profile and Subfolder as inputs will mark the particular email with a flag and/or mark it with a color.

    I have looked into the FlagStatus property but haven't been able to get it to work.

    Has anybody had any luck achieving this?

    Hopefully this helps!

    Profile - Text
    Subfolder - Text
    ID - Text
    markAs - Text (Expects "flag" or "done")


    Dim Outlook as object
    Outlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
    Dim ns as object
    ns = Outlook.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
    if Profile <> "" then
        ns.Logon(Profile, , True, True)
    end if
    Dim item = ns.GetItemFromID(ID)
    if markAs = "flag" then
    	item.FlagIcon = 6
    	item.FlagStatus = 2
    	item.FlagRequest = "Follow up"
    	item.ReminderSet = False
    else if markAs = "done" then
    	item.FlagIcon = 0
    	item.FlagStatus = 1
    	item.FlagRequest = "Completed"
    	item.ReminderSet = False
    	item.FlagIcon = 0
    	item.FlagStatus = 0
    	item.FlagRequest = ""
    	item.ReminderSet = False
    end if
