Monitor a folder for changes in outlook

Sometimes, you may want to fire rules or perform functions on the arrival of an item in a folder inside Microsoft Outlook. The built in rules wizard is pretty powerful and useful in these situations, however it doesn’t work with folders outside of your mailbox.

With this example, it is possible to use the ‘WithEvents’ method on a folder outside of your own mailbox.

This even works on Public Folders!
