Hi,
I know you can access the inbox of any mailing system with MAPI controls.Is there a way in which i can access the tasks folder or anyother folder other than inbox (in the outlook) with MAPI controls? this is for VB5.0 application. any help would be highly appreciated.
thanks in advance,
vmano

Don't use MAPI.

Goto PROJECT References and select:
  Microsoft Outlook x.0 Object Library

Goto VIEW Object Browser and select:
  Outlook (instead of <all libraries>

There you will see all your Methods, Collections, etc...

i already did tried that and thanks for the answer.
but there is a problem with that. when the outlook is open already, it is creating problems. so i think it's not a good idea to go that way. do you have any other ideas?
thanks,
vmano

Try to call API and insert Hyperlink. VB5 has these functions.
