we have an outlook mailbox that i want to be able to keep track of how many unread messages there are (in several folders) on a "big screen"
i found this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/171603
which explains how to use visual basic to report back the # of unread messages in a folder. my thought is to maybe have a "monitoring board" screen created in flash or silverlight which reads the data and displays it, refreshing it every minute or two.
it can also be regular HTML i guess, as long as it is refreshing on a regular basis.
does anyone know if this is possible, and maybe can point me in the right direction? then i can hopefully get a programmer (from a service like odesk or vworker) to create it for me.
