Application.NewMail Event (Outlook)

Occurs when one or more new e-mail messages are received in the Inbox.

expression .NewMail

expression A variable that represents an Application object.

This event is not available in Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript).

The NewMail event fires when new messages arrive in the Inbox and before client rule processing occurs. If you want to process items that arrive in the Inbox, consider using the ItemAdd event on the collection of items in the Inbox. The ItemAdd event passes a reference to each item that is added to a folder.

The NewMail event does not fire when the user is in offline mode.

This Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example displays the Inbox folder when a new e-mail message arrives. The sample code must be placed in a class module, and the Initialize_handler routine must be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.

Public WithEvents myOlApp As Outlook.Application 
 
 
 
Sub Initialize_handler() 
 
 Set myOlApp = Outlook.Application 
 
End Sub 
 
 
 
Private Sub myOlApp_NewMail() 
 
 Dim myExplorers As Outlook.Explorers 
 
 Dim myFolder As Outlook.Folder 
 
 Dim x As Integer 
 
 Set myExplorers = myOlApp.Explorers 
 
 Set myFolder = myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 
 If myExplorers.Count <> 0 Then 
 
 For x = 1 To myExplorers.Count 
 
 On Error GoTo skipif 
 
 If myExplorers.Item(x).CurrentFolder.Name = "Inbox" Then 
 
 myExplorers.Item(x).Display 
 
 myExplorers.Item(x).Activate 
 
 Exit Sub 
 
 End If 
 
skipif: 
 
 Next x 
 
 End If 
 
 On Error GoTo 0 
 
 myFolder.Display 
 
End Sub
