Develope a plugin for outlook to set an icon for messages RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to develope a plugin for MS Outlook that is going to work in this way:

    1. It will send the data of an Email message to a database (that is easy, not part of the question)

    2. It has to set an icon for this message, that remains permanently -> that is the question part.

    Description: I have seen that Sugar CRM has done this before. You can install a plugin in your Outlook and than you have a toolbar and a context menu, where you can send the messages to your sugar application and database. If you do that in Outlook, the specified message gets an icon, so the user knows that this message has been sent to Sugar and this icon remains forever.

    How can I do that?

  • What do you mean send message to a database? Usuallly a meeage is sent to receipts.

    What do you mean set an icon for the message? Do you mean add categorize for the message or mark it as an task?

    If so, we can do it by below code:

    aMailItem.categorize ="Red Category"
