  • While Outlook does not fire a specific event for the flagicon change you can use the PropertyChange event on the MailItem object to grab the change. You can also use this event to grab changes on other properties as well.


    Private Sub myItem_PropertyChange(ByVal Property_Name As String)

                Select Case Property_Name

                Case "FlagIcon"

                            ‘Do processing

                Case Else

                End Select

    End Sub


    Hope this helps!
