The proposed solution uses MSOutlook, but could also be solved using MAPI objects (CDO).
The items counted are looked up directly in the inbox, so if you have an inbox assistant moving itmes to other folders, they won't be counted.

You need to have Microsoft Outlook in your references:

  Dim a As Outlook.Application
  Dim f As Outlook.MAPIFolder
   
  Set a = New Outlook.Application
  Set f = a.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
  msbgox f.UnReadItemCount
 
  Set f = Nothing
  Set a = Nothing
