  • Hi Martin,

    Thanks for visiting our forum, here we mainly focus on general issues about Outlook desktop client but your question is more related to VBA codes. I am afraid little we can help about modify the VBA codes. If you still want to get more useful information, it is suggested to post a new thread to the Outlook for developer forum.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thanks for your understanding and hope your question will be resolved soon.
