I need a rule on Outlook, or something like this to warn staff where I work when sending to certain email addresses. Can you create something that if you email a specific address or range of addresses that a pop up box of your own devising comes up before sending and then you click yes or no that you definitely want to send to this person/address? Outlook 2010.

What have you researched and tried so far? –  CharlieRB Jan 24 '13 at 16:37
I know that by using Exchange 2010 if I was looking at distribution lists rather than individual email addresses you can set up moderation groups who then have to approve the email going out. That would be absolutely ideal. Basically I need to check to stop people sending confidential information to clients. –  DomCF Jan 25 '13 at 8:36

Not without some clever programming.

Standard filters only run AFTER a message is sent (or upon receipt of course). And in any case you can do very little on sending.

Many thanks, I feared this was the case but appreciate the confirmation of that nonetheless! –  DomCF Jan 25 '13 at 8:33
