I am writting a VB program that loops thru all the emails in Outlook 97's "Inbox" folder and then moves some to a special folder that I created called "Processed UnitedWay Pledges." I cannot move the emails from the inbox to my special folder. Does anyone know how I might accomplish this task? Everything else is working fine.
Thanks!
