To avoid missing some important emails from someone, you can make the emails open automatically when arriving into your Outlook.

    Set GInboxItems = GInboxFolder.Items
End Sub
Private Sub GInboxItems_ItemAdd(ByVal Item As Object)
    Dim xMailItem As Outlook.MailItem
    Dim xSenders As String
    On Error Resume Next
    If Item.Class <> olMail Then Exit Sub
    Set xMailItem = Item
