Before Close Event in Outlook

Is there any object in Outlook with an event that I could use to catch the application before closing with option to cancel?

I should add that I do have Redemption installed.
Hello shacho,

there is no direct close event, but first why would you cancel a close?

Greetings, shacho.

There is the Quit event of the Application object, but it can't be cancelled.  It's there so any VBA code can be closed out and cleaned up before Outlook shuts down.

It's quite silly actually.  My boss is complaining that when he closes the main Outlook explorer all of his open Outlook windows go with it, so he wants a confirm on close dialog to pop up before the application quits.  Yes - I know - this is a truly stupid quest.  Bu I can't say to him, "How about learning how to use the application correctly instead?".  Any suggestions?

Not too silly.  I've complained more than once about the fact that Outlook doesn't ask if you're sure like many other apps do.  It just closes.  I've no suggestions though.
