Category-Manager Category-Manager
With Category-Manager you can group your Outlook categories, share them with other users, filter a folder by category, automatically categorize new emails, and more. You can use the Addin even for IMAP.

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.
