Using Outlook 2000 or 2002, XP workstations ( and Exchange 2000) I would like to find a way to automatically insert some identification information ( user initials) in the subject line of every email we send, forward, or reply to.
My users can't seem to remember to do this themselves, so I would like to pre-load this suffix for them.
The idea here is, worms may raid their addressbooks and spoof their user names, but, so far anyway, none seems to be smart enough to determine if custom rules are in effect and spoof those also.
I have looked for some existing registry setting, but I been unsuccessful.
If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it !

well I dont know how you feel about macros,

you could add this macro in

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Item.Subject = "XX:" & Item.Subject
End Sub

this goes into ThisOutlookSession module (ensure you double click on that to get the code window)

XX is the user's initials - I just put that as an example, you can put in whatever you want
I appended XX with a colon then the original subject as entered by user
