Macro for showing catergories dropdown box in mails in Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the following problem with outlook 2010 : I would like to easily and quickly categorise not only incoming mail (inbox) but also the new, fwd and re mails but the drop down categorize button (within Tags in the ribbon) is not available for those mails.

    When looking around on the net, I found the below VBA code for creating a macro allowing to call the categorize window. This is nice but not yet quite what I want. How could I obtain the same drop down categorize function ?

    Is it sufficient to replace ShowCategoriesDialog by on other identifier ?

    Thanks for any help


    Public Sub CategoriesButton()
      Dim Item As Outlook.MailItem
      Set Item = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
    End Sub
