  • Hello Jatin,

    You can handle the Quit event of the Application class which is fired when Microsoft Outlook begins to close.

    Be aware, as part of the goal to improve performance, Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 Service Pack 2 (SP2) and Microsoft Outlook 2010 include some significant changes to ensure that Outlook shuts down properly when the user attempts to close it. The Shutdown Changes for Outlook 2010 article describes the changes to Outlook 2010.

    In case if the fast shutdown feature is enabled, you can handle the Close event of the Explorer/Inspector classes to be notified when the last window is going to be closed, so the Outlook process finishes.

    See Outlook 2010 Fast Shutdown feature for more information.

    you had mentioned that ," I have the addin Expresss to close the event "

    are you developing using Addin express?

  • Deepack,

    The Outlook object model is common for all kind of applications. It doesn't matter whether you develop a VSTO or Add-in Express based add-in. Moreover, earlier I mentioned the article which describes the required steps for handling the Close event correctly, see Outlook 2010 Fast Shutdown feature for more information.
