Change CTRL+ENTER shortcut behavior

By default, users can use CTRL+ENTER to send an e-mail message. Users are prompted the first time they use the shortcut to confirm sending the message. You can change this behavior so that CTRL+ENTER does not send an e-mail message or so that the confirmation prompt is never displayed.

Supported on: At least Windows Vista
