Bringing Outlook 'New Mail Alerts' and 'Reminder' windows to the front

Overview

In a full screen RDP session it's not possible to see Outlook's message/calendar alerts.
TODO Bring the 'toaster' messages to the front.
One way to overcome this is to update the Outlook object model to respond to ThisOutlookSession events and bring the reminder window and the 'New Mail Alerts' window to the front.

I have written a short tip on CodeProject which also includes the source.

The tip/trick can be found here: http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/1063065/Make-Outlook-E-mail-and-Appointment-Alerts-top-mos
