Send email notification with category

Is it possible to send an email that contains an Outlook category? I have a solution that creates a SharePoint folder when a new item is added a list. It also emails the person mentioned in the list item as the "Leader". I'd like to assign a dynamic category based on the item.

I am pretty sure that categories are defined on the recipients side so no, the best you could hope for is to set a category on the senders side but it does not sound like that is what your after.

Thank you. I guessed as much.

Hi @lordipswich,


Currently, there is no way to set the category of the sended email, there is an idea about it, you can vote it to make it come true in the future:
