Unfortunately, there is no such example available. There are many different outlook versions and it's hard to tell based of what you want to distinguish newly arrived email (sender name, subject, date/time, something inside the email,...). So please, be as specific as you can.

Generally speaking, you will have to create an xpath in repo, which would represent the expected email you wish to track. Then you can use WaitFor Exists action, which would wait for the appearance of xpath in outlook. In my opinion, it's the simplest code-less approach to achieve what you want?
