Email address check before sending RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ones in a while, an email I send is sent to the wrong email address because of the automatic suggestions of Outlook. You see what you did wrong, ones the email is allready send. Is there a last warning box available in Outlook that let's you check if you are sending the message to the correct person?

    Currently, I am afraid Outlook doesn't have such a feature to prompt before sending messages to wrong addresses.

    An workaround is that we may defer the delivery of messages by one minutes or two using a rule so that we can have time to recover the message and change the address.

    For detailed instructions about how to delay sending messages, please check the following article:

    Delay or schedule sending email messages-Delay the delivery of all messages

    Or you can disable the AutoComplete feature via File > Options > Mail, but it is not recommended because most of the time, this is a good time saver. 

    Additionally, if you are familiar with macros, you may consider using macros to achieve the requirement. 

    Hope the above information can be helpful.

    Best regards,
    Yuki Sun
