Outlook 2K New Mail Notification

By dabson ·
In Outlook 2000 I have my regular Exchange mailbox setup, plus I have another mailbox that I "share" with others in my department. What I'm looking for is a way to get new mail notification in the Inbox of this secondary account. Outlook itself will not support this thru options or rules, but it might be possible thru VBA. How can I setup new mail notification on the (non-default) Inbox?

PS - The new mail notification on my default Inbox cannot be changed or turned off, that's not an option in this problem.

Outlook 2K New Mail Notification

Not sure if this would be what you are after but, within Outlook goto the following:
Tools | Macros | Visual Basic Editor

Select Project1 | Microsoft Outlook Objects | ThisOutlookSession

Then goto Application in the left hand combo box and select NewMail in the right.

If you where running the other mailbox in a separate Outlook Session then creating a message box would allow you to receive messages only for this account. If you are running it in the same session then you will need to do some research into how to distinguish between the 2 different accounts.

If you need any help contact me on the following

Thank's for trying, but I figured what you mentioned out on my own. What I'm looking for is an actual implementable solution.
