  • Just use a FindItems request on the Inbox by default EWS will return the last email in the Inbox as the first result in the result set. While this is not guaranteed to be the last email that the Mailbox received (eg the user may have deleted that already) it will probably do what you want.

  • using Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data;
    var service = new ExchangeService();
    var inbox = new FolderId(WellKnownFolderName.Inbox);
    var iv = new ItemView(500);
    iv.OrderBy.Add(ItemSchema.DateTimeReceived, SortDirection.Descending);
    var items = service.FindItems(inbox, iv);
    if (items.TotalCount > 0)
