Outlook: Prompting Users Before Sending Messages


Does Outlook 2002 include a feature that will prompt users when they click Send with a message such as, "Are you sure you want to send this email?" Our previous email system had this capability, and some of our users found it helpful.

Outlook doesn't have such a feature, but you can use a minimal amount of VBA code, as Listing 1 shows, to add the capability. For information about VBA, see "Back to Basics," August 2001, http://www.exchangeadmin.com, InstantDoc ID 21522.
