10. Working with Outlook Events

Events in the Outlook Object Model

Understanding the events in the Outlook object model is critical because this is often the primary way that your code is run. This chapter covers many of the events in the Outlook object model, when they are raised, and the type of code you might associate with these events.

Outlook associates the same set of events with all the Outlook item object types listed in Table 9-1 in Chapter 9, “Programming Outlook.” In this chapter, we will refer to Item events, but there is no Item object per se in the Outlook object model. Instead, you will find the same set of Item events (defined by ItemEvents_10_Event interface) on 16 of the 17 Outlook object model objects listed in Table 9-1
