When numUnreads changes, you can run your function.
hOutlook = actxserver('Outlook.Application');
nameSpace = hOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI");
inboxFolder = nameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(6); %
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
