Folders Collection


An object containing MAPIFolder objects that represent all the available Microsoft Outlook folders in a specific subset at one level of the folder tree.

Using the Folders Object

Use the Folders property to return the Folders object from a NameSpace object or another MAPIFolder object.

Use Folders(index), where index is the name or index number, to return a single MAPIFolder object. Folder names are case-sensitive.

The following Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example returns the folder named Old Contacts.

Set myOlApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set myNameSpace = myOlApp.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
Set myFolder = _
Set myNewFolder = myFolder.Folders("Old Contacts")

The following Visual Basic for Applications example returns the first folder.

Set myNewFolder = myFolder.Folders(1)
