On Outlook 2003 is there a way to get a confirmation dialog box when sending an email?  After clicking SEND, I would like a box to ask something like, 'Are you sure?'.

This should do it...

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim intRes As Integer
    Dim strMsg As String
   
    If Item.Class = olMail Then
        strMsg = "Are you sure you want to send this email?"
        intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNoCancel + vbDefaultButton1, "Send mail?")
        Select Case intRes
            Case vbNo
                Cancel = True
            Case vbCancel
                Cancel = True
            Case vbYes
                ' default behavior -- nothing to change
        End Select
     End If
End Sub

Hi sirbounty,


sirbounty's answer is good.

I just want to add, you can download an addin on Microsoft's addin page to prompt you before you "send to all". The creator is Sperry, a Microsoft certified partner. Cost is $9.

sirbounty,

I need a little bit more hand holding.  I've never done any code in Outlook.  Can you point me to a site that will tell me where and how to put this code in?

Frankco,
I would be willing to pay $9 but I want it for every single time I hit send not just send to all.

Press <Alt> + F11 to get the code window (in Outlook)
On the left pane, drop down Project1, Microsoft Office Outlook Objects, double-click ThisOutlookSession and paste the code on the right-hand side.

Click File/close (or <Alt>+Q) to close.
Restart Outlook and enable macros...
