How to use the Omsgclas.doc Word document to automatically change the message class of Outlook items


Omsgclas.doc is a Word document that uses Office automation to change the message class for all items in an Outlook MAPI folder. With Outlook, you can create a new form for items such as contacts and set a Contacts folder property so that all new contacts use the new form. However, old contacts will still use the old form. The Omsgclas.doc document allows you to change the message class held for each item in the folder so that all existing items will use a specific custom form. This document works with all types of Outlook items.
