expression .Subject

expression A variable that represents a MailItem object.

This property corresponds to the MAPI property PidTagSubject. The Subject property is the default property for Outlook items.

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates a new e-mail message, uses the Add method to add "Dan Wilson" as a To recipient, sets the Subject property, and displays the message.

Sub CreateStatusReportToBoss() 
 Dim myItem As Outlook.MailItem 
 Dim myRecipient As Outlook.Recipient 
 Set myItem = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) 
 Set myRecipient = myItem.Recipients.Add("Dan Wilson") 
 myItem.Subject = "Status Report" 
End Sub
