    Optional Save Sent Items (2000)

    Hi'ya!

    I've been using outlook for about 12 months now and I am still unsure if I want to save all sent items or not. About once every 2 or 3 weeks, I change my default selection from saving items to not saving items.

    I use to use lotus notes and it had the option of 'prompt me to save items'. When I sent an email, it use to prompt me about saving the item and I got the choice for each email.

    I can still do this with outlook, but clicking on options and selecting save (or not) for each email is just one click to many. I much preferred the dialog box that responded to a Y or N.

    So ... here come the questions ...

    Q1. Can I get outlook to prompt me to save outgoing emails?

    Q2 What about a rule that prompts me for (say) a category (I could put in a category of 'delete' with a another rule to delete items with a category of 'delete')?

    Q3. Can I put in a macro that executes just prior to the send command and asks me about saving the email?

    There is some VBA code here on the Slipstick site that gives you the choice as to where to save each message before you send it. That way, you could save in the Deleted Items folder when you wished. HTH

    Fantastic!

    It wasn't exactly what I wanted so I put in the following bit of code ...

    <pre>Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim lsMessage As String
    lsMessage = "Do you want to keep a copy of this email?"
    Item.DeleteAfterSubmit = Not (MsgBox(lsMessage, vbYesNo) = vbYes)
    End Sub
    </pre>


    Thanks for your help.
