I saw a cute sign once. that said, simply, "And then I hit Reply to All." We've all been there, and unfortunately, once the message goes out to a group of people it's almost impossible to get it back again. Or maybe you've sent out a message but forgot to add a Subject line. Rest assured that Microsoft has your back and will try to prevent you from accidentally sending a group e-mail or a message without a Subject line. All right, we're going to pretend that I want to send a message out to my friend Glenda, and I'm really excited about seeing her on Saturday. You know the drill. I click the New E-mail message, and I start filling in Glenda's contact information, and I fill in my message itself.
And in my haste and excitement, I go to send off this message, not realizing I'd forgotten to include a Subject line. Microsoft stops me and says, hey wait a minute. Did do you want to send this message without a Subject? At this point, I have two options: I can either send the message anyway, or I can click Don't Send. In this case, I'd like to add a Subject, so I click Don't Send, and I fill in my Subject. Now when I go to send this message, off it goes. Outlook will give you a similar message when you click Reply to All or send to a large group of contacts.
Sometimes it's actually nice to know that big brother is watching.
