Drag and drop



I have an application that requires that file names be less that 90
characters long. I can't seem to make my users do this when they save .msg
files themselves. So we have one macro in Outlook that will format the file
name corretly for them. A couple of users get around this by dragging and
dropping their messages to the file system. I would like a macro that gets
fired when a drag and drop is done and tests the file name for formatting.
How do I get a macro to run when they initiate a drag and drop and how do I
access the filename of the messages they dragged?

There are no events that fire when a message is dragged from Outlook to the
file system
