Edit Subject for every sent message

Hi there,

My employer has an add-in that sends email securely.

I am trying to get better at using it but I frequently forget to hit the right "Send Securely" button (since it is separate from the default Outlook Send button).

So I am looking for a way to automate this process. So far I see two options:

1) Is there a way to replace the default "Send" button in outlook with a different "Send Securely" button, so that every time I hit send it will go through this add-in?


2) I discovered that if I put the words "{Secure Message}" in the subject line of any email I send, it will automatically be routed as a secure email. SO the other way of going about this is simply to add "{Secure Email}" to every message I send. It seems like this could be done via a Script rule... can anyone give me some help on this?

As a further step... I think all email sent within the company is already secure, so it would be nice to narrow the rule down a bit further to add this text to the subject line of emails sent only to people who are NOT within the corporation's domain... hope that makes sense.

Thanks for helping!!!
Thanks so much for the reply. I'm definitely a newbie at this, having never done an Outlook Script before! I think I will need a little more step-by-step instruction so I don't screw anything up.

I looked at the link you are referring to and it looks like the script posted is:

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

If InStr(LCase(Item.Subject), "mail merge subject") Then

With Item
.Importance = olImportanceHigh
.ReminderSet = True
.ReminderTime = #10/30/2012 8:00:00 AM#
.FlagRequest = "Please reply by 10/30"

' to add an attachment, enter the path & name here
.Attachments.Add "D:\For merge\filename.docx"
End With
End If
End Sub

Can you modify this so that it is exactly what I need? It looks like a lot of the above language would not be necessary for my application.

Also, to the second part of my question, do you know how I would be able to exclude any messages sent internally?

Thanks again for your help!
Remove everything between the if... end if and replace with
item.subject = "keyword " & item.subject

then test it. to limit it to outside domains, you need to add an if... end if statement. I'm not sure the best way to do that, probably check the recipient collections for @ (internet addresses).
