Does anyone have any code that will populate a treeview control with the folder structure of an outlook profile? My whole goal is to be able to traverse the folder structure that a user has in thier outlook profile without starting (visibly) outlook.

This example needs a reference to Microsoft Outlook Object Library to be added to the project.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim appOutlook As Outlook.Application
    Dim blnCloseIt As Boolean
    Dim fldFolder As MAPIFolder
    Dim tvnFolder As Node
    On Error Resume Next
    Set appOutlook = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
    If appOutlook Is Nothing Then
        Set appOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
        blnCloseIt = True
    End If
    With appOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
        Set tvnFolder = TreeView1.Nodes.Add(, , "Mapi", "Mapi Folders")
        tvnFolder.EnsureVisible
        For Each fldFolder In .Folders
            IterateFolders "Mapi", fldFolder, TreeView1
        Next
    End With
    If blnCloseIt Then appOutlook.Quit
    Set appOutlook = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub IterateFolders(Parent As String, CurrentFolder As MAPIFolder, TView As TreeView)
    Dim fldFolder As MAPIFolder
    Set tvnFolder = TView.Nodes.Add(Parent, tvwChild, CurrentFolder.EntryID, CurrentFolder.Name)
    tvnFolder.EnsureVisible
    For Each fldFolder In CurrentFolder.Folders
        IterateFolders CurrentFolder.EntryID, fldFolder, TView
    Next
End Sub
