Special option to auto populate subject line in Outlook 2003
Posted on 2009-04-16
We received a request for a feature in Outlook we have never seen before. Look at the request below and see if there is a feature, 3rd party software or a work around we are unaware of:
With respect to the concept of being able to identify e-mails that are attorney-client privileged, business records, or non-business records, perhaps we can use some buttons in Outlook that would automatically populate the subject line of new e-mails with intro info like ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE: or BUSINESS RECORD: or PERSONAL: etc. We did something like this at my old company, after a new document classification system was put in place requiring each document to be labeled as Internal Use Only, Confidential, or Restricted. Buttons were installed on Outlook that would be clicked to begin an e-mail, replacing the New selection with three or four options to get the message started. So the subject line would say, for example, CONFIDENTIAL: and then the author would fill in the subject of the message after this text.
Any help appreciated,
