I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can handle NewMail event of outlook application.
you may create an addin for outlook which will fire the newmail event whenever a new mail will arrive to the inbox.

 Private Sub outApp_NewMail() Handles outApp.NewMail
