Visual Basic Script for Outlook

I use Toodledo, a web-based to do list. I would like someone to create an Outlook visual basic script to help me use it better.

Basically, Toodledo allows input via email, using a customized address I would like to send emails that need follow up to the recipients, and then a slightly customized, more descriptive version to Toodledo.

As of now I send many emails that I would like to go in my Toodledo @waiting folder (or context). Sending it to my Toodledo bcc address loses valuable info:

1) It’s not clear who the recipient is

2) The title sometimes includes the wrong description

3) It’s not filed into @waiting

I would like a visual basic script that will send more descriptive @waiting items from Outlook to Toodledo. The item in Toodledo should contain the date, who the email was sent to, and an optional descriptive title.

Here’s a potential script workflow:

1) script triggered by a keyboard shortcut

2) email to recipient sent

3) Outlook presents an input box with two text fields

a. The first for descriptive title containing as a default the email's subject line

b. The second is blank for the folder

4) Outlook sends an email to Toodledo email with the following info

a. In the subject line: Name of recipient -- descriptive title or default subject line (day/month of email), @waiting and, if applicable, the folder

i. Example: John Smith—website redesign (12/31) @waiting *website

b. body should contain full email, including all recipients and original subject line

The full Toodledo email syntax can be found at [url removed, login to view], but the relevant parts are as follows:

• context = @ + context. For this it is @waiting

• folder = *+folder. For example, *website

If anybody who has experience with visual basic in Outlook wants to take this task on, please contact me.

I'm very skilled in VBA, and implementing the script you need should be easy. But if you need the script to be able to operate without user intervention, I guess you'll have to install "Redemption for Outlook" DLL, to More
