I am trying to prevent emails with attachments from being sent to the

wrong person accidently. I need a way to have outlook scan the

attachment for the email address of the recipient. The attachment

would be a word document, text file, or excel file with the first page

or row having the client's name and address. Is there a way to do this

in outlook before it would allow the document to be sent? I would like

to have it where when clicking the send button that a box would come up

if the recipients’ email address was not in the attachment. I am a

basic user of outlook so I do not know much about COMs.

You can handle the item.Send() event and check the attachments there.

However to check each attachment you need to save it to the file system and

load it with the program that handles that type of file. You can then scan

the file using methods from that program (assuming it can be automated).

For information and samples for COM addins for Outlook look at

www.outlookcode.com
