I noticed that Application_NewMailEx is not getting called on new mail arrieved. Do I need to set any object for this event as well as we did it in objMailItem_Send in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_24253844.html?

Thanks.

Hi, deshaw.

Yes, objects ALWAYS have to be initialized before they can process events.  Application_NewMailEx will work fine in Outlook without you doing anything because Application refers to an intrinsic object in Outlook.  But, add-ins don't have the application object by default.  Your add-in code has to create an instance and initialize it.  Since you are using that add-in template, I believe it has done the work for you.  Does it contain a line something like

    Dim WithEvents objApp As Outlook.Application

If so, then to trap the NewMailEx event you simply need to modify your code to read

    Sub objApp_NewMailEx

instead of
    Sub Application_NewMailEx

In this case objApp is your add-in's instance of the application object.  Does that make sense?
