How can I iterate through accounts/mailboxes in Outlook using VB .NET?

Hi,

I have a small application which monitors unread mail in a user's Outlook application. Some users  have one single account and some people have several (I don't always know how many).

My problem is how to iterate through the accounts/mailboxes and if I can, will the "NewMail" event be fired for all mailboxes?

I've tried e.g. "For each oAccount in oAccounts" but keep getting a "This is read-only memory" error for some reason. Do I have to loop through Namespace recipients and resolve them all instead?

I'm using Outlook 2003 and Visual Studio 2008

Please post more code if this still doesn't work for you (not sure where oAccounts is coming from):
but looping through the SESSION accounts is how I've done it:

app = new Outlook.Application()
for each account in app.Session.Accounts

I tried Session.Accounts but I just keep getting errors with "Reading from protected memory" error. I've just looped through folders looking for "Posteingang" and "Postfach" (German for "Inbox" and "Mailbox") as a temporary fix to this.

My only solution I'm afraid. I don't want to accept my own answers
