Outlook attachment reminder macro

Spotted on LifeHacker: Mark Bird’s Outlook Attachment Reminder.

This Outlook macro will politely remind you to attach a file if it finds the word “attach” in your email and no actual attached file.

I’ve just tested it in Outlook 2003, and it sure does work … and you get to pretend that you’re a programmer for a couple of minutes.

In other news: hands up who knew that there was a Visual Basic Editor shipped with Outlook?
