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?

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.
