Outlook Reminder Before Send. Stop Over Sharing!

Here’s a vbscript to help you stay on point. This will pop up a dialogue box that asks if you are sure you want to send the email. Hitting no will put you back on the compose email page, and hitting yes will send the email normally.

In outlook, click on Tools > Macro > Visual Basic Editor > This opens up the editor > expand Microsoft Office Outlook Objects in the Project pane > double click ThisOutlookSession > Copy and Paste the following code > Save and Close.

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim intRes As Integer
Dim strMsg As String
strMsg = "Is this concise?"
intRes = MsgBox(strMsg, vbYesNo + vbDefaultButton1, "Hold on Cowboy! ")
If intRes = vbNo Then
Cancel = True
End If
End Sub

I have a problem. I over share. With God’s help and some vb magic, hopefully I can kick this nasty habit. Thank you Sue Mosher for providing the code!
