Outlook Events Logger Add-in

Outlook Events Logger Add-in is a free tool that enables you to see all events in Outlook 2000-2010 as they happen. The add-in is built on Add-in Express for Office and .net. Normally you would handle the needed event, in event handler you would either add a log string or set a breakpoint, run Outlook and get the event handler to trigger.

With Outlook Events Logger Add-in you can see all (or selected) event chains in the log window embedded in Outlook Explorer. You can filter events by groups; for example, see only those event chains that are fired by Outlook Explorer, Inspector, Folder etc.
