Confirm before sending?

I have a client that accidentally sends e-mails before completing them on a

regular basis. They would actually like confirmation before sending any

e-mail.

I found this reference for VB code but I don't know how to edit or apply it

as I know NOTHING about VB

-

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

Dim intRes As Integer

Dim strMsg As String

strMsg = "Do you really want to send this message?"

intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton1, "Confirm Send ")

If intRes = vbNo Then

Cancel = True

End If

End Sub

Open the VBA editor (alt+f11), ensure you see the project explorer (ctrl+r),

double click the "ThisOutlookSession" module to open it, paste the code into

that module.

If the code won't be executed, check the security settings in Outlook

(Tools/Macros/Security).

Best regards

Hm, one option is to remove Outlook or even the entire Office and make a

clean installation of it. Another one, which I'd prefer, is to just delete

the code you had pasted as descriped.

Hello Michael,

Do you think is possible to set something like that using an exchange account trough the iOS mail app?

Thanks in advance for your help

Angelo

The macro is for outlook client side - it won't work on the server and won't work on the ios app. Sorry.
Hello Diane,

Thank you very much, it was what I thought. But my boss wants desperately this feature on his iPhone.

Any ideas?

Thanks again

Angelo
