I would like to move a selected mail item in the Inbox to a selected sub-folder of the Inbox. But I have no idea how to reference "active" or "Selected" folder. I can make a folder the selected folder (for example: Set ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder = objCurFolder) but I cannot seem to find any sources explaining how to reference this folder once it is the "selected" folder.

Can anyone help?

This shows how to work twith the current item - Outlook VBA: Work with Open Item or Selected Item
current folder is similar.

Dim objOL As Outlook.Application
Set objOL = Outlook.Application
Set objFolder = objOL.ActiveExplorer.CurrentFolder
