I Want a Warning Before Sending Email to Certain Contacts

Can someone tell me how to configure Outlook so that I will get a

warning message before sending email to certain contacts? For example,

I have certain contacts categorized as "adversary" or "client" and I

would like Outlook to make me confirm that I do, in fact, want to send

an email to anyone from those categories. The idea is to prevent

myself (and colleagues) from accidentally sending an internal email to

the wrong person because of Autocomplete, inadvertence, or some other

mistake. Thanks in advance. Extra points for a firm-wide

solution--something the system administrator can set up that everyone

will be subject to.

Outlook version? In the meantime, you might want to take a look at the code

sample at http://www.outlookcode.com/codedetail.aspx?id=553. It's an example

of checking data in an outgoing message.

A firm-wide solution would require an Outlook add-in. Note, though, that any

kind of notification like this can quickly become something that users click

through without reading.
