Drag and drop

I have an application that requires that file names be less that 90

characters long. I can't seem to make my users do this when they save .msg

files themselves. So we have one macro in Outlook that will format the file

name corretly for them. A couple of users get around this by dragging and

dropping their messages to the file system. I would like a macro that gets

fired when a drag and drop is done and tests the file name for formatting.

How do I get a macro to run when they initiate a drag and drop and how do I

access the filename of the messages they dragged?

There are no events that fire when a message is dragged from Outlook to the

file system
