Represents a specialized action (for example, the voting options response) that can be executed on an Outlook item.

The Action object is a member of the Actions collection.

Use Actions (index), where index is the name of an available action, to return a single Action object from the Actions collection object of an Outlook item, such as MailItem.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the Reply action of a particular item to send a reply.

myItem = CreateItem(olMailItem) 
Set myReply = myItem.Actions("Reply").Execute

The following Visual Basic for Applications example does the same thing, using a different reply style for the reply.

myItem = CreateItem(olMailItem) 
myItem.Actions("Reply").ReplyStyle = _ 
Set myReply = myItem.Actions("Reply").Execute
