Outlook default and redirection to pst

Posted on 2002-03-03

Hi experts, I'm connected to an exchange server and I've set my environment (using the mail-applet in the system control) to redirect all incoming mails (when I'm logged in Outlook/Exchange) to my personal folder (i.e. to a pst file).
How can I detect using a vba (or vb) snippet if I've installed that redirection or not?
Using the mail-applet I can do that.
I didn't find the related object-method/property (I expected it being in the folder collection) to detect that.
Thank you for any help.

vb/vba is not capable of using extended mapi.  if you wanted to read those properties, you would have to develop your solution using Delphi or C/C++.

Thank you Neo_mvps, could you provide me an appropriate snippet (C++) making this decision?
Or an referral to one?
In addition, is there a specific object to be used?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I'm no good at C/C++ but you can try the MAPI-L list at http://peach.ease.lsoft.com.  The interface you are after is IProfAdmin.  (In order to search the archives, you will have to join the list.)

C/C++ or Delphi seems not to be required.
I believe, it CAN be solved using VB (VBA).
But I haven't yet coded it.
