Attachment reminders in Microsoft Outlook

Question

Is there a way to create a reminder that notifies you about a missing attachment in outgoing mail for Outlook? For instance, if you forgot the attachment to your email but youve used the word "attach" in the body of the email...

Microsoft actually has a freeware tool you can download and install from the Microsoft Research Team. It's very groovy and we covered it here: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/microsoft/disable-reply-all-office-2010-outlook-exchange/

The Tool allows you to not only detect if you forgot to add an attachment but it also allows you to block people from reply all on the email you send.

Very cool. It's a long article so be sure to read the entire thing.

There is a freeware Outlook add-on called “CodeTwo Outlook Attachment Reminder”.It works with Outlook 2007 and 2010.

It has a customisable phrase list that you can add to and edit which it uses to scan your mail when you click send. If any of the key words are present and no files are attached you are given a warning and the option to either "send anyway", "do not send" or "attach file".

It ignores the original message text when replying to emails so that it only scans your email, avoiding false positives.

You can choose to scan the message body, subject or both

Follow this link for full info and a video of how it works

Thank you. However, the next problem I am running into is that my signature card at word is an attachment so there is always one attachment that goes out in every email.

Steve, do you know a way to use the Microsoft Add-in for missing attachments even though I automatically have one attachment?

      Hi all,
       
      I updated my outlook to 2016 recently but now i can't open old emails in unicode format. The email in unicode 2016 i can open them but the old ones ( 2013 ) i can't. I try browse and found the outlook 2016 but no luck.
       
      Can someone tell me how can i open the emails in unicode format ( 2013 outlook version ) ?
       
      Regards,
      Alina

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.

      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.

      I am using Outlook 2003.I have huge numbers of .pst files . I want to manage Outlook by dividing PST files by Folder. But i don't want to compact files.
