Hello all,

I receive a system generated email every morning by 9am. If I don't get this specific email, then something with this system is wrong.

Is there a way to setup a notification if I don't receive a specific email by a specific time?

I was thinking you might be able to set up a daily reminder at a specific time and then use one of the techniques shown on this page to fire some code to check if the email was received or not.

Just a thought...

I think I got it to work. On Application_Startup, my code loops through emails within a certain time frame and searches to see if a particular one was received.

If not, I have it popping up a msgbox to tell me that I haven't gotten it.

However when I open up Outlook the msgbox is popping up behind the Outlook 2013 splash screen. Any ideas on how to bring it up front or is there another event I can fire off of?

Thanks all!
