Hello Experts,

I am using Lotus Notes 7. I want to get a message box whenever I send an attachment with the email. The message should say "Have you password protected the attachment?", there should be a Yes/No button. Only on clicking "Yes" should the message be send.

I dont have any kind of scripting rights (I am just a normal user). I just wanted to know if this is possible using some inbuilt option (for example, the way spell checker works).

Please let me know if you need some additional information.
Thank you so much for your help.

Warm Regards

There is no specific inbuilt option for this as it would need to be added to the design of the memo document or the send button.

If you have designer right to your own mail file, it is possible you could do this yourself but I would advise requesting the change be done by a Lotus/IT proffesional as a mistake could prevent any mail being sent from your system.

Creating a messagebox on detecting an attachment is relatively simple but requires the designer client and placement in the right section of the memo form.

Unfortunately, no way to do this  yourself, as a Designer would need to change the template, and any change in the mail template is not trivial.

In addition he would need to keep your template special, or it would be applied to everyone's template.

I hope this helps !
Thank you both of you for your help.
