How to send mails with reminder for adressees? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I already invested some effort (including searching in different places) in finding out how to send mails via vb.net with following properties

    • Flag "Flag for me" set
    • Date "Start date" = 08.10.2015
    • Date "Due date" = 15.10.2015
    • Flag "Reminder" set, Date = 14.10.2015, Time= 16:00 Uhr
    • Flag "Flag for recipients" set
    • Flag to = "Follow up"
    • Flag "Reminder" (in lower area of this window) set
    • Date = 13.10.2015, Time= 12:00 Uhr

    What I did up to now:

    With olMailItem
       .FlagRequest = "Follow up"
       .ReminderSet = True
       .ReminderTime = dDueDate
    End With

    With this the last three points of the list above work, but then...

    I can't find the other properties of the MailItem object for the other points.

    Does anyone have a good idea?

    Thanks a lot in advance and best reards,

    Markus

  • You cannot do that - imagine how much the spammers would love that: just send a message, and Outlook will popup a reminder for you. The only way to do something similar is to send s meeting request - Outlook will create a tentative appointment in the Calendar folder when it sees a meeting request in the Inbox.

  • Hi Markus,

    As Dmitry stated, we are not able to send an message with reminder in Outlook. As a workaround, we can assign a task to otheres.

  • Perhaps this article will help, it is a list of all MailItem Properties.

  • Thanks, but I checked this already with no success. None of these properties seems to do what I need... Or I am blind and don't see the woods because of all the trees...

  • If you think that might help then it would be great if you moved this question into another forum where it might fit better.

    I am moving your question to the Outlook for Developers forum since it has been several days since you have asked this question.
