Hi All,

I have another AppleScript query... :)

Pressing the key combo 'Command Shift M' opens a dialog box that allows you to move an email message to a particular folder (via a search function).

Is there a script that can allow me to 'open' or 'go to folder' in outlook, using the same search function?

In microsoft outlook (windows) there is a key combo 'Control Y' that allows you to enter a folder name and it will scroll down and open that folder - i want this is outlook 2011 mac

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thank you

Trent

Not exactly what you want but you can give it a try.

Display dialog box :

Code:
on run {}
	set {button_pressed, text_returned} to {button returned, text returned} of (display dialog "Enter the name of the mail folder." with title "'Go to Folder' Outlook 2011" default answer "INBOX" buttons {"Cancel", "OK"} default button 2)
	if button_pressed is "OK" then
		tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
			activate
			if view of the first main window is not equal to "mail view" then
				set view of the first main window to mail view
			end if
			set messageAccount to first imap account
			set folderNames to name of mail folders of messageAccount
			if text_returned is in folderNames then
				set selected folder to the folder named text_returned
			end if
		end tell
	end if
end run
Choose from list :

Code:
on run {}
	tell application "Microsoft Outlook"
		if view of the first main window is not equal to "mail view" then
			set view of the first main window to mail view
		end if
		set messageAccount to first imap account
		set folderNames to name of mail folders of messageAccount
		choose from list folderNames
		if the result is not false then
			set folderName to item 1 of the result
			set selected folder to the folder named folderName
		end if
	end tell
end run

Thank you, however when i copy and past your script into the editor - i get a Syntax Error: Expected class name but found identifier. (on the main window text)

Any ideas?
