Outlook 2016 has removed support for AppleScript. I used to use a script to move my mail to the Archive folder on Ctrl-A. How do I restore that functionality?


One could also do the following:

  • In the Outlook Menu Messages, look for the Move > option. See if there is a Archive (provider) menu option.

Much like this:

That being the case, mapping a key to it can be done in the Keyboard preferences.

  • Go to System Preferences
  • Select Keyboard
  • Select the Shortcuts tab
  • Click the Plus sign button and create an Application Specific shortcut. (Preventing system wide use)
  • Type in the Menu option from Outlook exactly as it appears in the menu.
  • Type your preferred shortcut

Now, go back to Outlook and test it.

This reply contained detailed instructions and a script. Both have been moved to https://github.com/proski/MacOutlookArchive and greatly reworked.
