    Set timer/clock on emails?

    Hello! So, in my line of work I have a 4 hour response time to any email I have that comes in. I am trying to find a way to basically set a countdown/timer on emails so when the email is getting close to the 4 hour mark, it's flagged. Anything to distinguish that I need to respond soon.

    Any ideas? I've spent all afternoon searching for Macros. Problem is, I can't use add-ins as it's restricted by the administrator so I have to use a VBA Macro or even a rule.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have a look at the code here: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Fo...-new-mail-item

    It uses the DateAdd() function (documented here) to set 8 minutes. You want 4 hours, so change the DateAdd("n", 8, Now) to DateAdd("h", 4, Now).

    Note: I have not tried this code myself, so cannot guarantee it.

    My internet connection can be intermittent, so sometimes I may not reply quickly to questions. Sorry - it's not personal and I will reply eventually.
    If your problem is solved, please go to 'Thread Tools' above your first post and 'Mark this Thread as Solved'.
    If you use commas as your decimal separator (1,23 instead of 1.23) then please replace commas with semi-colons in your formulae.
    You don't need to give me rep if I helped, but a thank-you is nice.
