  • Create a VBA script or a COM addin that sets up an event sink on the Items collection of the Inbox folder (retrieved from Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) ). In the Items.ItemAdd event handler, check the number of items in the collection (Items.Count) and create a new message (Application.CreateItem), populate its properties, and send it.
