I need to listen the mails (of my Outlook mailbox) and if a new mail comes in my mailbox to trigger a function.

When numUnreads changes, you can run your function.
hOutlook = actxserver('Outlook.Application');
nameSpace = hOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI");
inboxFolder = nameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(6); % https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/api/outlook.oldefaultfolders
numUnreads = inboxFolder.UnReadItemCount

I am unsure about how I should proceed with this, as I am not familiar with events and listeners. As far as I understood, the event is triggered when a property of a handle class (using the handle class notify method) changes. So where exactly should your code snippet be placed? Under the properties block of the class definition? Thanks in advance
