Capturing category change events for all MailItems RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am an absolute outlook newbie developer. I am writing an addin that should capture change in email's categories and then do some processing . I saw something similar in another post but couldn't get a solution. From what I understand, the PropertyChange Event is per email basis right? How would I go about capturing events for any MailItem? I know doing foreach on each MailItem and linking is not the way to go.

    Could any one illustrate how I would use the folder level ItemChange event? If I can capture an event for the entire folder INBOX, it would be ideal. 

    Hope someone can guide me through this
