Check out this thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/thingm/to...

Your options are to use Growl, user outlook rules, or to use the VBA Developer aspect of outlook.

Here's code example for the VBA solution: https://github.com/YoYo-Pete/blink1/b...

Make a batch file using the blink1-tool

In Outlook, press Alt + F11
Select "Microsoft Outlook Objects > ThisOutlookSession
Copy and paste the code below and save the file
Modify the batch file name & path as needed

Private Sub Application_NewMail()
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.Run Chr(34) & "C:\Blink\Blink Commands\Flash Yellow & Red.bat" & Chr(34), 0
Set WshShell = Nothing
End Sub

This will make it run without opening the command prompt window
I just discovered this today :D
