I've been putting some thought into how I could detect new mail arriving into a Public folder in Outlook - but cannot think of anything particularly dynamic!

Does anyone have any suggestions? Much appreciated! ;)

Hi Steve,

Did you try to use the ItemAdd event of the Items class in Outlook for such task?

For example, please take a look at the How to determine if an item was added to, changed in, or removed from a given Outlook folder(s) sample add-in project which is available on the HOWTO web page of our web site.
