Outlook 2016 question on sending emails: I have both IN company email contacts; and out of my company contacts. When I send an email to Dave Smith internal person but then I have Dar Smith an external person. Can I color code an email address to make sure I dont accidently send an email (especially with confidential info) to wrong person? I m looking for a back up stop gap and maybe if I could color all my outside email blue it will help me. thank you


If you mean color the email address in the To, Cc, Bcc field when composing a new email, I don't think Outlook provides such an option. However, Outlook does show a notification in the infobar when you are sending to an external recipient.
