VBA Procedure (or Macro) to Stop Outlook from Closing?

I am new to using Outlook, but have written many Access and Excel VBA

procedures.

Often, I unintenionally click the "X" close button in the upper right corner

of the application.

Outlook provides a dialog box that states, "Are you sure you want to

permanently delete all the items and subfolders in the "Deleted Items" folder?

I do NOT want to even close Outlook, much less delete items!

I would like a dialog box that allows me to cancel the closure of Outlook.

What would the VBA macro look like to cancel my unintended closure of Outlook?

Please cc your response to: btescher@nd.gov

Your response will be appreciated.

You could use the Outlook object model to cancel the click on File/Close,

but it doesn't offer anything cancel a click on the "X" button. Instead,

you'd have to use a lot of Win32 API calls and hook into the sent Windows

messages.

There's already a tool available for that, please see 'OLKeeper' here:
