i have visual studio 2008, and have tried to create my very first outlook addin. However, I have absolutely no idea how to fire my code when an email is being sent.

I know what to do if i was creating a macro for outlook in vba, but I want it as an addin. Does anyone know the code for the event that is fired when an email is being sent? please can it be a vb example too.

thanks

The event you're looking for is ItemSend. It's an event of the Outlook application object. If you are looking to only execute your code on mail items, check he item class to assure that you only look at Outlook.OlObject.olMail.
