Move msg into folder from hard drive

I have a load of .msg files from an outlook folder I would like to re-import into a particular folder in outlook.

I know I could simply drag and drop all the files, however I would like to do it by code.

I have managed to copy mailItems between folders in VBA and assume its roughly the same, but don't know how to open an mailItem from a harddrive. I assumed it would have been something like:-
dim tmpMailItem as MailItem
tmpMailItem.open "d:\msg3223.msg"

Open in new window

Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you

All the Outlook gurus I know all recommend using the  GetMessageFromMsgFile function in this utility: http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/home.htm

Redemption can:
Import MSG, MIME (EML/RFC822), vCard, iCalendar and TNEF files
