When I click send mail, I would like a choice to cc a group.  If yes, add the addresses to the cc field, if choice is no, dont.  How would I do that?  I have limited experience with vba.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

This works, but the message box has a habit of getting behind Outlook or the mail message, causing grief
Substitute TheNameOfYourGroup with the appropriate thing
Code MUST go in ThisOutlookSession

Option Explicit
Public WithEvents m_Inspectors As Outlook.Inspectors
Public WithEvents m_Inspector As Outlook.Inspector
Public WithEvents myitem As Outlook.MailItem

Private Sub Application_Startup()
  Set m_Inspectors = Application.Inspectors
End Sub

Private Sub m_Inspectors_NewInspector(ByVal Inspector As Outlook.Inspector)
  Set m_Inspector = Inspector
End Sub
'
Private Sub m_Inspector_Activate()
On Error GoTo exiterr
'is this item a mail item
If Not m_Inspector.CurrentItem.Class = OlObjectClass.olMail Then
    Set m_Inspector = Nothing
    Exit Sub
Else
    Set myitem = m_Inspector.CurrentItem
End If
Exit Sub
exiterr:
Set m_Inspector = Nothing
Set myitem = Nothing
End Sub
Private Sub myitem_Send(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim msg As Integer
    msg = MsgBox("Do you want to CC the group?", vbYesNo+ vbSystemModal, "CC?")
    If (msg = vbNo) Then ' no, then bail
        Set myitem = Nothing
        Exit Sub
    Else
        Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace
        Dim Folder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
        Set ns = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
        Set Folder = ns.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
        Dim objOutlookRecip As Outlook.Recipient
        Set objOutlookRecip = myitem.Recipients.Add("TheNameOfYourGroup")
        objOutlookRecip.Type = olCC
    ' Resolve each Recipient's name.
    For Each objOutlookRecip In myitem.Recipients
        objOutlookRecip.Resolve
    Next
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

I placed the code in the ThisOutlookSession but I don't get the message box when I click on send.  Is there something else needed to trigger the event?  Thanks for the help.

I just checked the security settings and they were disabling the code.  It works fine.  Thanks very much!
