warning message before sending email with excel file

Hi Everyone,

We are looking for a solution where an employee is sending out an email to external party with excel file attached and they should get a pop up question "Are you sure you would like to send this email with excel file"

We have exchange 2007 and would like to know if there is third party software or exchange has this type of feature. Please let me know as we need this asap.

Thanks

Hi,

I know about this one but you cannot discriminate sending an email with or without attachments as far as I know.

Hi,

this code would probably do it

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

Dim intRes As Integer
Dim strMsg As String

bExcelAttachment = False
Set myAttachments = myItem.Attachments
'if there are some...
If myAttachments.Count > 0 Then
    For i = 1 To myAttachments.Count
        If myAttachments(i).DisplayName Like "*.xls*" Then ' is Excel file
            bExcelAttachment = True
            Exit For
        End If
    Next i
End If
If bExcelAttachment = True Then
    strMsg = "Are you sure that you would like to send this email with excel file?"
    intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton1, "Confirm Send ")
    If intRes = vbNo Then
        Cancel = True
    End If
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Rgonzo1971,

Thank you for your quick response. What do you mean by "I know about this one but you cannot discriminate sending an email with or without attachments as far as I know."?

Where would I insert that code?

Hi,

the code should be entered in the ThisOutlook Module with Alt-F11 and the Security level should be at medium, (ask before running Macros)

for a mor detailed description on how see
