    Hi There,

    For some reason, mine, it works well only for one day. The codes don't seem to work anymore the next day, although those codes remained intact,

    Anyone has such experience and know why?

    Thanks.

      Hi, i've got the same experience. Not sure yet how to solve this, i'm very new to VBA.
      Would like to hear from you if you found a fix.

    Hello! Very useful and it works perfectly.

    Is it possible to adjust the code so that it only pops up when there is an attachment? Similarly, is it possible to adjust it so it prompts the pop-up only when the message is sent externally (not to people of the company)?

    Hi There

    Is it possible to get a message to come up only when an attachment is present, and only when sent externally?

    Thank you very much!

    If you want the pop-up to only happen when you send to several emails, i.e. >10, how do you do that?

    Oh and thanks, it works like a treat.

    Gracias de antemano!!
