Hi,

Is there any way to trap the following events in Outlook:-
1.) Drag and drop a message on Desktop
2.) "Save As" option from the File Menu
3.) "Import\Export" for exporting a message to a local PST
4.) Move that happen via Rules

It is possible to trap the menu events, but do we have any control to determine if the wizard or the dialog boxes that show up for completing the operation are completed entirely or were they cancelled intermittently. Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi Megha,

1. Unfortunately Outlook doesn't provide any feature for a such task.
2. You can try using the Built-in Control Connector component.
3. See the first answer.
4. You can try using the MAPI Store Accessor.

There is no such a control.
