Hi

I want to assign a text and colour to mail items based on a condition.

However I am seeing that only text can be assigned via MailItem.Categories

How do I assign both .

Thanks
Sujay

Hello Sujay,

Yes, the Categories property only accept text values. As to the color, how do you expect this to look like?

Hello Andrei

I want to replace the colour added to the text ; presently it has black colour tag, can this be changed .( MailItem_Category.png )

Also how is it possible to categorize the mailitem with a colour ; I found a link, but cant understand how to associate it with the mailitem . ( Category.png )


I have added the pictures in the zip file

Thanks
Sujay

Hello Sujay,

Thank you for the explanation.

You get the name of the category with a correct color and assign it to MailItem.Categories.
