ReplyAll Event

Office 2003

Occurs when the user selects the ReplyAll action for a Microsoft Outlook item.

Sub object_ReplyAll(ByVal Response As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

object    An expression that evaluates to one of the objects in the Applies To list.

Response    The new item being sent in response to the original message.

Cancel    Optional. False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the reply all operation is not completed and the new item is not displayed.


This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the ReplyAll event and reminds the user that proceeding will reply to all original recipients of an item and, depending on the user's response, either allows the action to continue or stops it. To use this example, open an existing mail item, run the Initialize Handler() procedure, then reply to the item.

Public WithEvents myItem As MailItem

Sub Initialize_Handler()
	Set myItem = Application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem
End Sub

Private Sub myItem_ReplyAll(ByVal Response As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
	Dim mymsg As String
	Dim myResult As Integer
	mymsg = "Do you really want to reply to all original recipients?"
	myResult = MsgBox(mymsg, vbYesNo, "Flame Protector")
	If myResult = vbNo Then
		Cancel = True
	End If
End Sub
