VBA + Exchange + Outlook: Archive multiple mailboxes - best approach?

Hi

Thinking of adapting BlueDevilFan's Outlook archiving script (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_21713056.html) to trawl through multiple Mailboxes, have half a dozen bound to by default profile.

As I've never played with Exchange / Outlook before am wondering if I should be tweaking the script to walk the other mailboxes (Folders) from my default profile, or set up an autonomous profile for each of the in-boxes, and just add some code to walk / swap the profiles, and call the code more or less as is? Are there any significant benefits / dis-advantages to either approach?

Hi, arober11.

The former approach (i.e. walking the other mailboxes) is probably better.  I need to know what version of Outlook you're using in order to say that with certainty.

Hi

Sorry for the delay in replying, either Outlook 2003 or 2007 against Exchange 2003.

No problem.  How many additional mailboxes are we talking about?
