Outlook autoforward

Here’s a macro I wrote to automatically forward outlook emails sent to my work email address to a personal email address. Outlook does have an autoforward feature, but that seems to have been disabled at my workplace. This adds the string “AutoFwd:” to the email title and sends it on to the given email address.  […]
