Add ItemSend event (so add-in can cancel email)
Would like to have an ItemSend event in the web API just like the regular API does. Is that on the planning stage for future releases?
Thanks for your feedback! This is something we’re currently investigating. We’ll keep you posted.

Any update/plans on adding support for ItemSend?

This is the main thing missing that's keeping us on VSTO. It's disappointing because we want to use the new and shiny that is Office.js :(
+1, For a platform which aims at going all web based, this is not a MUST, it's a requirements

Can you guys please give an update on the status of this issue. As you can see many people are really waiting on it....

Can someone from Microsoft share any updates on this? Like the previous commenter, our addin critically depends on this.

This is critical to our use of this app architecture. The only thing holding us back.

Any idea when an update might occur?

Any update on the addition of this highly-anticipated event?

I represent an add-in company and we have several very large Enterprise customers who all want to have our add-in for mobile but we are dependent on this feature being implemented. This could honestly be a reason for them to switch to the Outlook App for mobile.
Please Microsoft, comment on the plan fro this. There are so many add ins depending on this and other similar events. They are now in the limbo not knowing if they can support mobile.
It would be nice to have at least several basic events as of itemSend, onNewItem, onReply, onForward. Add-in just may indicate in manifest what events it needs to listen and will be notified via callbacks. A lots of actions can be done without user interaction, just by working with mail item.

it would be great if the project team make a comment as to the plans on this one.. whether they will pursue this or not so people like us can make a decision now..
On new item even will be useful as well.
Although that request is for Excel and Word, the same events are needed in Outlook addin to aid in development of apps that work the same as current client addins work.
