Automating Outlook Express from VBScript

I'm using this code in order to read the contents of my Outlook Express Inbox:

Sub GetFolderContents()

 Dim objOutlook As Object
 Dim str As String
 Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
   Dim objNameSpace As Object
   Dim objFolder As Object
   Dim i As Integer
   Set objNameSpace = Outlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
   Set objFolder = _
         For i = 1 To objFolder.Items.Count            
            'do something
       Set objFolder = Nothing
       Set objNameSpace = Nothing
       Set objOutlook = Nothing
End Sub

But it read the two items I have in the outlook Inbox which I actually don't use at all.
What can I do in order to read the Outlook Express folders ?

nothing. Outlook Express does not support automatisation.
