Hi Daniel,

mail_optional_follower_notification and mail_footer_notified_partner could be interesting for you.

A concern came up, about Odoo users accidentally send out email to external email addresses, such as customers or vendors.
To goal is not the prevent this from happening, such as in a blacklist/whitelist feature, but to avoid that from happening accidentally.

I'm not sure should looks like.
One idea could be having a dialog box confirmation before posting a message mentioning an external user.
Maybe we could external email from chatter messages, and only allow it from a Action menu send email option.

On the OCA i've only found "mail_restrict_follower_selection" (
But I'm not sure this is the solution I want to go to.
At least it may not be enough on itself.

Did some of you faced the same issue?
Any thoughts, solutions, tips you can share?
