Classify for Microsoft Outlook is an add-in that helps add security classification labels to e-mail messages. Classify helps ensure that sensitive information is marked for proper security handling and complies with established e-mail security policies. Classify enables you to easily add a classification label in the first line of the message body by selecting from a list of predefined classifications. It prevents Outlook from sending the message until a classification has been inserted.

Classify for Outlook 2000 is available from Tools on the Web.
