Programming Context Menus

Guest

Is it possible to use VBA to program the context menus in Outlook. I'd like
to be able to right click on a message and have a selection of folders right
on the context menu to move the message to. Is this possible? I've done
some programming and willing to do the work to learn how to do it if it is
possible. Just like to know I'm not wasting my time and it just can't be
done. TIA

Outlook 2007 provides Application-level events for the most commonly used context menus that are very easy to use from VBA.

In versions before Outlook 2007, Outlook does not directly expose the right-click context menu in its CommandBars collection. You will, however, see a new right-click command is when the item selected is using a custom form that includes one or more custom actions. You can also add a custom action without using a custom form, as demonstrated at http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=526. This technique, however, is not suitable for use with mail messages.
