Hi,

I'm new to VBA in Outlook, but have created this little script that pops up a confirmation box that asks if the user have remembered to choose the right "Send from" address.

However I'd like to have it do that - only - if a particular send from address has been selected - how can I do that?

Here's the script so far:

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

    Dim intRes As Integer
    Dim strMsg As String
    strMsg = "Har du husket den rigtige ""From"" adresse? "
    intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton1, "HUSK! ")
    If intRes = vbNo Then
    Cancel = True
    End If

End Sub

Try this.
OM Gang

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)

    Dim intRes As Integer
    Dim strMsg As String, strSender As String

    strSender = Item.SendUsingAccount.SmtpAddress
        'test from address
    If strSender = "theparticularaddress@mydomain.com" Then

        strMsg = "Har du husket den rigtige ""From"" adresse? "
        intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton1, "HUSK! ")
        If intRes = vbNo Then
            Cancel = True
        End If
    End If

End Sub

Hi OM gang,

You'r solution worked for my account, but apparently not for my colleague - I've created a new question here if you could take a look at it?
