Some users always need to print out the flagged emails in Outlook. Hence, in this article, we will introduce a method to configure Outlook to auto accomplish this.
More often than not, to follow up an email, you can flag it. Meanwhile, in order to get details about this email even after shutting down your computer, you may hope to print it out as well. Hence, usually, after you flag an email, you are used to continuing to print it. Now that this is a repetitive operation, why don’t you let your Outlook do it automatically? Perhaps you’ve already hold such an idea, but unfortunately Outlook doesn’t provide a direct feature. Well, in the followings, we will share an efficient method to realize it. Now read on to get elaborate steps.
Auto Print an Email after Flagging It
- For a start, access Outlook VBA editor by making reference to “How to Run VBA Code in Your Outlook“.
- Then, in the new screen, open the “ThisOutlookSession” project and copy the following VBA code into it.
Public WithEvents objExplorer As Outlook.Explorer Public WithEvents objInspectors As Outlook.Inspectors Public WithEvents objMail As Outlook.MailItem Private Sub Application_Startup() Set objExplorer = Outlook.Application.ActiveExplorer Set objInspectors = Outlook.Application.Inspectors End Sub Private Sub objExplorer_SelectionChange() On Error Resume Next If objExplorer.Selection.Item(1).Class = olMail Then Set objMail = objExplorer.Selection.Item(1) End If End Sub Private Sub objInspectors_NewInspector(ByVal Inspector As Inspector) If Inspector.CurrentItem.Class = olMail Then Set objMail = Inspector.CurrentItem End If End Sub 'Auto Print after flagging an email Private Sub objMail_PropertyChange(ByVal Name As String) If Name = "FlagStatus" Then If objMail.IsMarkedAsTask = True Then If objMail.FlagStatus <> olFlagComplete And objMail.FlagStatus <> olNoFlag Then objMail.PrintOut End If End If End If End Sub
- Next, exit the current window and restart Outlook to activate this project.
- From now on, every time when you flag an email, Outlook will auto print it out, like the following screenshot.
