This should be the correct location for VB code for Outlook.

The code actually gets saved in a file called VbaProject.OTM (I'm testing under Outlook 2010, but believe it should be same under Outlook 2007).  I always make a point of explicitly hitting Save while in the VBA Editor window.

If the VBA code is not saved, you will not get a prompt when VBA Editor gets closed.  Instead, Outlook should prompt you to save when you quit Outlook itself.  If for some reason Outlook crashes, you may loose the code, hence my practice of always saving in the VBA Editor.

If this does not help, please let us know which version of Outlook you are using.

Hi all, this seems to work after we select 'warning for all macros' instead of 'no security checks for macros'.. selecting 'no security checks for macros' seems to work intermittently.

marcin comment reassures that there could be some settings probably that cause the issue
