            Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Application MYAPP = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.ApplicationClass();
            Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.NameSpace mapiNameSpace = MYAPP.GetNamespace("MAPI");
            Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MAPIFolder myInbox = mapiNameSpace.GetDefaultFolder(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox);
for (int i = 0; i <= myInbox.Items.Count; i++)
                lblSubject = ((Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem)myInbox.Items[i]).Subject; //throws exception here
                txtBody = ((Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem)myInbox.Items[i]).Body;
               // if (((Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem)myInbox.Items[i]).CC.Length > 0)
                Mail_CC = ((Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.MailItem)myInbox.Items[i]).CC;
