Hi all,

I am connecting to outlook using the Interop.Outlook namespace. The issue I have is that no matter what I put in on the login, it still logs me in ahhhh

I have the following code..

            Outlook.Application outlook = new Outlook.ApplicationClass();
            Outlook.NameSpace ns = outlook.GetNamespace("Mapi");

            object _missing = Type.Missing;
            //ns.Logon(_missing, _missing, true, true);
            ns.Logon("UserDoesntExist", "Password", false, true);


            Outlook.MAPIFolder inbox = ns.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox);

            int unread = inbox.UnReadItemCount;

Open in new window


The ns.logon still works. I want to be able to specify the mail server and the user to login as./.. any idea's  thanks M
