Showing Outlook address book in VB
Posted on 2004-10-01
At the moment I'm trying to make up an automatic mailer in work, I have a text box with a standard template and a few fill in the blanks.
My problem is that when I'm sending a mail and fill in the 'to' field I have to know the exact username or exact name for visual basic to validate it with outlook or I get an error saying the user can't be validated.
I saw in another application how they had a text box done up like the 'to' field in outlook and when you type in a partial name the actual outlook address book popped up.
Does anyone know how to do this?
I'm connecting to outlook through the reference
Dim ol As Outlook.Application
Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim newMail As Outlook.MailItem
