Reply link in mail body through Powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I have requirement for a outlook reply link in the body of the parent mail box.

    For instance if a mail comes to a approver he/she can approve a mail through a click on link .

    with a body as approve or reject as a body to the same email.

    I tried by putting

    <a href=""subject="any text"&body=Approve">Approve</a>

    <a href=""subject="any text"&body=Reject">Reject</a>

    The major challenge here I am facing is that every mail comes to the approver to approve or reject has  with a secret key as a subject associated with it and I can not capture that secret key anywhere .So is there a way i can get the same subject of the parent mail in my reply links With Powershell scripts?

    The thing is we have some tool and from where we are shooting this automated email to the approver of the business.

    So we are putting the Approve and Reject link in the body of the mail box that comes to approver , so that he/she can click that link and new mail will be created with respective body and same subject line(as this has unique key for every request) as it came to Approver .

    So my question was is it possible to have same subject line in a link , like same as we get in "Reply" button of Outlook through Powershell scripts.?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Please contact the vendor of your custom software for assistance with this.  You are using a custom workflow solution which we cannot support or know about.  Only the vendor can answer your question.

  • okay , lets keep aside the vendor involvement lets say is there a way to put reply link in the body of any email so that we can get the same subject ?

  • No.  How would you get access to "any" email?  It is possible to write a custom component for the email server that can modify the email but no with a script.

    You can post in the Outlook developer forum to learn how to use VBA to process incoming mails.
