    Question I need a popup box to appear each time I click the "new email" button in Outlook

    Hi All,

    First timer here, I hope that this makes sense! Thanks ahead of time for any responses.

    I have used macros in outlook before that trigger a pop-up box to appear. normally these popups are asking the user to make a selection for example, select yes or no, then the macro performs an action.

    what I need: I need a popup box to appear each time I click the "new email" button in outlook. The box will display a reminder to the user. the popup then needs to be able to be dismissed (no action needing to be taken, the popup would serve as a reminder only).

    Is there a way to make this happen in outlook? I am only aware of macros that accomplish a task after the user takes action.

    Thanks for your help!

    Put this code into the ThisOutlookSession module. It will take effect the next time you restart Outlook. Outlook may prompt you to enable macros.
