Forcing Outlook to send emails only with subject
Posted On July 22, 2006
It’s important and mandatory that the emails we send have relevant “subject” to it. At times, we miss to mention the subject and send email. Please follow the simple steps below which will prevent you from sending a mail without a subject. This should/must be configured in office mailbox in which subjects are more crucial.
Here are the below steps
- Open your outlook
- Press Alt+F11. This opens the Visual Basic editor
- On the Left Pane, one can see “Microsoft Outlook Objects”, expand this. Now one can see the “ThisOutLookSession.”
- Click on “ThisOutLookSession”.
- Copy and Paste the following code in the right pane.(Code Pane)
Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim strSubject As String
strSubject = Item.Subject
If Len(strSubject) = 0 Then
Prompt$ = "Subject is Empty. Are you sure you want to send the Mail?"
If MsgBox(Prompt$, vbYesNo + vbQuestion + vbMsgBoxSetForeground, "Check for Subject") = vbNo Then
Cancel = True
Save this and now close the VB Code editor and take a breath. From now on, this macro will make sure you do not make the mistake of sending a mail without subject.
