Last Modified: 2012-05-06
I am using MAPI in VB.Net to retrieve Outlook mail sent to a mail box.
For this I am using username, password stored in the database. If one username, password fails I would to login with different username, password.

Currently this is not possible since the username is getting stored. Any idea... how to do this with another username, password ?

Thanks in advance

If you problem is the MAPI object will not let you update the username then just destroy the object and recreate it.
