Hello,

1. I would like to find out which email item is currently
highlighted by the user and get the EntryID of the highlighted mail item. Any body has any idea?

2. If i do not want to put the code for (1) in a macro,
can i compile an exe or something like that, and put it
as a button on Outlook? Actually my intention is to
hide the code from the user (since i can't do that with macro)

Any answer appreciated.
Thanks

I don't believe there is a way to know which item is selected. However you can get the EntryID for each item in the Inbox as follows:

Dim objApp As Outlook.Application
Dim objInbox As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim objItem As Object 'Not all are MailItems

Set objApp = New Outlook.Application
Set objInbox = objApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox)
For Each objItem In objInbox.Items
   Debug.Print objItem.EntryID
Next
Set objApp = Nothing

Hope this helps,
Anthony
