Actually I need to have a window, where user can enter some creteria for search and on click of search, results need to be displayed in the folder view pane.


Any ideas on how to do this?




I thought of using advancesearch of application, so that it creates search folder.


So I need to select the search folder programmatically.




Any help on how to approach /solve this will be helpful.

AdvancedSearch() returns a Search object which has a Save() method that

returns a MAPIFolder object. That's how to get the reference you need. If

you intend to repeat the process make sure to store the folder EntryID or

delete the search folder when done with it.
