How to determine if message will be encrypted on Send

I'm trying to remove certain UserProperties when messages are sent. All

is well unless Outlook cancels the Send event when it has problems

encrypting (see Outlook's message further below). In that case, the

user has 2 options: "Send Unencrypted" or "Cancel". My problem is I

cannot determine which option the user selected.

The significance of these options is as follows: if the user selects

"Cancel", the UserProperties which were removed in MailItem_Send must

be restored (I have a solution for this in the Activate event); if the

user selects "Send Unencrypted", I don't want to do anything.

The only indication I have that the user has opted to "Send

Unencrypted" is the 2003 Word editor throws an error when I attempt to

access the currentItem.UserProperties. No error is thrown in 2003

default editor or 2007.

Is there a way to determine which button the user clicked?

Alternatively, is there a way to determine if Outlook intends to

encrypt the message or not? Or should I remove these UserProperties

somewhere other than MailItem_Send?

FYI, I don't have access to Redemption or any other 3rd party

software.

Outlook's message:

Microsoft Outlook had problems encrypting this message because the

following recipients had missing or invalid certificates, or

conflicting or

unsupported encryption capabilities...

Thank you in advance for your help!

Alternatively, is there a way to validate the certificates of the sender

and recipients? If so, I could cancel the MailItem_Send event and not

have to worry about restoring my currentItem to it's pre-send State.
