Reporter Reporter
VBOffice Reporter is an easy to use tool for data analysis and reporting in Outlook. A single click, for instance, allows you to see the number of hours planned for meetings the next month.

Rule for Emails

Since Outlook XP you can create rules to call a VBA macro for incoming emails. The requirements are that the macro is declared as public, located in the module ThisOutlookSession or in a standard module (no class module), and that there's a variable for the MailItem to be passed.

End Sub

Rule for Meeting Requests

If the macro is for meeting request items, you just need to change the data type in the declaration:

End Sub
