How can I ensure "MyEmail" object is not currently displayed in the Preview Pane?

My VB script examines the attachment on certain incoming emails, and deletes them if the attachment is OK.

If the email to be deleted happens to be the one displayed in the Preview Pane, the VB script fails with "Outlook cannot delete this item". (It's usually not, so the script works most of the time).

How can I guarantee that the email I need to delete is NOT the one displayed in the Preview Pane?

The following VBA code shows one way ... essentially test the activeinspector to see if it is the same as the item being processed and skip the code if so.

IN this case I preset the mail item being oprocessed ... your existing code will be doing this already and this object is tested against the current inspector.

Dim itm As MailItem

    Set itm = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).Items(3)
'=================
    If Application.Inspectors.Count > 0 Then
        If itm = Application.ActiveInspector Then
            MsgBox "oops - Skip it"
        Else
            MsgBox "OK - Continue"
        End If
    Else
        MsgBox "OK - Continue"
    End If

Chris,

Sorry to take so long to get back to this.

Looks like it should work so I'm going to award the points.

Thanks for your help.
