I want to create a rule in Outlook that checks an outgoing message for the words any word beginning with "attach" and checking if there is in fact an attachment.

If no attachment is found I want the message to be moved to Drafts and the user notified that they tried to send a message mentioning an attachment but there was no such attachment.

This can almost but not quite be achieved by the inbuilt rules. I believe I need to create a custom action, maybe.

I realise there are circumstances where the word attach will be used and there is no intention to send an attachment :)
