  1. Open your outlook
  2. Press Alt+F11. This opens the Visual Basic editor and then Press Ctrl+R which in turn open Project-Project 1 (left side)
  3. On the Left Pane, one can see “Microsoft Outlook Objects” or “Project1”, expand this. Now one can see the “ThisOutLookSession”.
  4. Double click on “ThisOutLookSession”. It will open up a code pane on the right hand side.
  5. Copy and Paste the following code in the right pane. (Code Pane) and save it
    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)Dim strSubject As String
    strSubject = Item.Subject
    If Len(Trim(strSubject)) = 0 Then
    Prompt$ = "Subject is Empty. Are you sure you want to send the Mail?"
    If MsgBox(Prompt$, vbYesNo + vbQuestion + vbMsgBoxSetForeground, "Check for Subject") = vbNo Then
    Cancel = True
    End If
    End If
