I have a shared inbox where it contains categories that I would like to export.  I tried to use vba, but I seem to be only accessing the "master categories" based off of my user account.

I there a method to extract the categories of a shared inbox?  If so, is there a method to also import these categories to another shared inbox?

I've tried the following code below to test... But again, this only brings in my master account's categories

Public Sub test()
        intCount = 0
        For Each olkCategory In Outlook.Session.Categories
            Debug.Print olkCategory.Name & "," & olkCategory.Color & "," & olkCategory.ShortcutKey
            intCount = intCount + 1
End Sub
