    Dear all,

    How can I get the MailBox Name with the Outlook VBA?

    I want also to ask if I design a form in the Outlook VBA, how can I publish
    the
    form to the others using OUTLOOK, can I create a shortcut in the public
    folder?

    How can i do?

    Thanks

    It's quite involved. You really need to purchase a book
    (I had to buy four different ones) on Outlook programming -
    I can't tell you how important that is. The following
    books are excellent:

    1. Microsoft Outlook Programming, by Sue Mosher
    2. Building Applications with Microsoft Outlook 2002, by
    Randy Byrne
    3. Developing Applications using Outlook 2000, CDO,
    Exchange and Visual Basic, by Raffaele Piemonte and Scott
    Jamison

    I'd provide you the code, but that would be giving away
    the store as far as these hard-working authors go. Sue
    Mosher is pretty gracious and she peruses this site
    often. She might feel compelled to start you off in the
    right direction... What do you think, Sue?

    Bottom line is you need to work with the MAPI and name
    space objects to get to the mailbox folders.

    As far as the form, you don't need to create it in VBA.
    You can create custom forms and use vbscript within them
    for button events. Books 1 and 2 above are good
    instructional sources in this area.

    First you should publish the form to your computer, then
    copy the form to the public folders. Then instruct people
    to add a shortcut to their outlook bars. Just don't
    forget to provide permissions to everyone to use the forms
    once they are copied to the public folder. For future
    updates, make sure you publish directly to the public
    folder instead of copying the form again, or the shortcuts
    will not longer work.
