Reporter Reporter
VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.

By using bookmarks you can collapse and expand text in an email. Select any text in your email, click Insert, Bookmark, and name the bookmark. In the code enter the name of the bookmark under the comment line between the quotes. You can start the macro by pressing alt+f8.

The sample works with Outlook 2007 and higher. It could also work for the older versions of Outlook if you set Word as mail editor.
