Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

Recurring e-mail message in Outlook


I have a really simple question. I'm attempting to create a reoccurring e-mail message in Outlook, in which I've located the following link, which works well: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/239087/ho.... But my question is "How can I make multiple lines within the Body of the reoccurring e-mail on the below line 'NewItem.Body = "This is text that will appear in the body of the message."'?" The VB code that is provided in the above link is as follows:
Sub Item_PropertyChange(ByVal Name)
Select Case Name
Case "Status"
if Item.Status = 2 then '2 = Completed
Set NewItem = Application.CreateItem(0)
NewItem.To = "myemailaddress@myisp.com"
NewItem.Subject = "This is the message subject text"
NewItem.Body = "This is text that will appear in the body of the message."
End IF
End Select
End Sub

Thank you for your response(s) ahead of time!

RE: Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

Separate the lines with vbcrlf. eg


NewItem.Body = "This will appear in the body" & vbCRLF & _
   "Time after time" & vbCRLF & _
   "After time after time" 
Alternatively you can concatenate it on different lines of code if you don't like continuation lines

RE: Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

Thank you MacGyverS2000 for the tip.

And thank you so much xwb for your code, which worked well! Any ideas on how to have the automatic e-mail to include the Yes/No Vote option as if sending the e-mail as a normal e-mail? Thank you again!

RE: Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

If you go into vba and type NewItem. and wait a while, it will come up with all the attributes that the items have. The one you are looking for is VotingOptions


NewItem.VotingOptions = "Yes;No" 
You do not have to be restricted to Yes and No - all the options have to be separated by ; eg if it was where would you like to go for the company do, it could be something like


NewItem.VotingOptions = "Sea side;Skiing;Trade Show;Clay pigeon shooting" 

RE: Recurring e-mail message in Outlook

Thank you very much xwb for the Voting options code, which is working well!

Have a wonderful weekend!
