Items.ItemAdd - raised when an item is added to a folder. It is raised for each item added. Not raised if a large number of items are added in one go. You can get round this limitation by using the FolderChange event and comparing the number of items in the folder before and after. 
Items.ItemRemove - raised when an item is removed from a folder. It is raised for each item removed from the items collection. Not raised if more than 16 items are deleted. 

Item.CustomAction - raised when a custom action associated with this item is invoked. The action parameter can be cast to an Action object

Property Change Events

Outlook items often have several properties associated with them
For example: Creation-Time, Importance, LastModificationTime
All these properties are contained by the ItemProperties property.
You can also define custom properties and associate them with the items.
When custom properties are changed Outlook raises the CustomPropertyChange event.

Custom Actions

Outlook enables you to associate custom actions with an Outlook item.
A custom action is given a name and some default behaviour
You can create a custom action whose default behaviour is to act on the original item or to reply to the existing item (for example)
You can also set whether the action is shown as a button, a menu command or both.
When the custom action is invoked from the menu or toolbar the CustomAction event is raised on the item.
