Declare a Public variable like this:

Public gobjOutlook As Outlook.Application

In event AddinModule_AddinInitialize initialize it like this:

gobjOutlook = Me.OutlookApp()

Now you can use it in your modules...

Finally in AddinModule_AddinBeginShutdown deinitialize it like this:

gobjOutlook = Nothing

Thank you, HJB!

Hi Nekker,

A raw sketch:

Outlook.Inspector = (AddinExpress.MSO.ADXAddinModule.CurrentInstance as Myaddin1.AddinModule).OutlookApp.ActiveInspector()

Hello Nekker,

Please note that the OutlookApp is just a property of the add-in module class. You are eligible to declare a variable of the Outlook.Application class in your code.
