Hi I'm using Outlook 2003.

From within a custom search folder, I'm wanting to loop through all mail

items and save each item in HTML format to a fixed directory (say "

H:\Blue").

I'm having problems trying to work out how to call the custom search folder

(lets say its called "Platinum")

Clearly I cant use Set mpfInbox =

myOlApp.GetNamespace("MAPI").GetDefaultFolder(olFolder etc etc)

I've found very little information on doing this...any idea?

How is this search folder created? If it's by code using the

Application.AdvancedSearch() method then when it's first being created and

saved you get back a MAPIFolder reference for that search folder. You can

then save the EntryID of that MAPIFolder and use that to get back the folder

at any subsequent time by using NameSpace.GetFolderFromID().

Otherwise there's no access to search folders in the Outlook object model

until Outlook 2007 or by using Redemption or some other API that lets you

access the Store object and dig down from there to the search folders.
