I've developed an Outlook Messagebox region and would like to be able to set one of my fields equal to the contents of the email being written.  Any direction on how to accomplish would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Create an outlook addin Application and then do something like this

    Private Sub Application_NewMail() Handles Application.NewMail
        Dim tempApp As Outlook.Application
        Dim tempInbox As Outlook.MAPIFolder
        Dim InboxItems As Outlook.Items
        tempApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        tempInbox = tempApp.GetNamespace("Mapi").GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox)
        InboxItems = tempInbox.Items
        Dim newMail As Outlook.MailItem

        Dim inBox As Outlook.MAPIFolder = Me.Application.ActiveExplorer().Session.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox)
        Dim DestinationFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder = inBox.Folders("Processed")
        For Each newMail In InboxItems
            Dim Des As String = newMail.Body
           'On Des variable you will have the body of the message for each new email that comes to the inbox
       Next
