Avoiding insertion of a redundant suffix to recipient's Email

Running Outlook 2007, an Expert has assisted me in coding a script which appends a suffix to the recipient's Email address.  For details, please see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_28374041.html

This works just as I had hoped, but there is a small, unexpected issue.  I have Outlook configured to suspend "sent" messages in the Outbox until a second instance of Send/Receive is executed.  Sometimes I need to review an outbound message, before sending it, and this approach allows me to do that.  If I open a message in the Outbox, make any changes, and then send it, the script appends a second suffix to the recipient's Email address.  If I'm paying attention, of course I will delete the redundant suffix.  However, if there's an easy way to adjust the script so that another suffix won't be added, I'd like to know.

That's simple enough.  This should do it.  Replace the code you have now with this version.

Dim bolAddSuffix As Boolean

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim olkRcp As Outlook.RECIPIENT, olkNew As Outlook.RECIPIENT, intCnt As Integer
    If bolAddSuffix Then
        If Item.Class = olMail Then
            For intCnt = Item.Recipients.Count To 1 Step -1
                Set olkRcp = Item.Recipients.Item(intCnt)
                olkRcp.Resolve
                If InStr(1, LCase(olkRcp.Address), "whoreadme.com") = 0 Then
                    Set olkNew = Session.CreateRecipient(olkRcp.Address & ".whoreadme.com")
                    olkNew.Resolve
                    olkRcp.Delete
                    Item.Recipients.Add olkNew
                End If
            Next
            Item.Recipients.ResolveAll
            Item.Save
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Sub ToggleAddSuffix()
    bolAddSuffix = Not bolAddSuffix
    MsgBox "AddSuffix is now " & IIf(bolAddSuffix, "ON", "OFF"), vbInformation + vbOKOnly, "Toggle Add Suffix"
End Sub
