When button is pressed it should execute the following task:
1)When the user select an email and click on the button, the following actions should be performed:
o The email should be forwarded to an email address we will provide
o It should move the email in the folder created
o It should reply to the sender with the following standard email “Dear Sir or Madam, Thank you for your email.”

Is this homework?

You may not need to even fire up VS for this; there is quite a bit of functionality available which may cover all of your needs by defining a Macro
Create a button for a macro - HowTo-Outlook[^]

Now if you need to distribute this, you could use Visual Studio to help refine and package it for others.
