    Subject Line (Outlook 2000 SP-3)

    Is there any setting in Outlook 2000 to either force you or warn you to put in a Subject line before sending? I occasionally forget to put in a Subject line and send the email out with a blank Subject. This can cause it to be ignored and deleted by the receipient or end up going to their Junk / SPAM folder and get lost in there. And at the recipient end it makes it hard to scan stored email and know what it was about ... I know because sometimes I'm at the other end of this situation and receive emails with no subject line. Outlook does let you know when you've forgotten to enter any 'To', 'CC' or 'BCC's. Is there some way of having Outlook warn you that you have not entered a 'Subject'?

    I don't know of anything in native Outlook settings, but you could code the Item_Send event under the ThisOutlookSession module like this:

    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    With Item
    If .Subject = "" Then
    Cancel = True
    MsgBox "Empty Subject Line"
    End If
    End With
    End Sub
    -John ... I float in liquid gardens
