Do you actually have a mailbox named  "Mailbox - test" ?

Your overall syntax is fine... but I think you might need to correct your mailbox name (I would think that the mailbox name should be the email address concerned.

Try this as a test instead, to verify that your code works ...
Dim MyOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim MyMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim ns As Outlook.Namespace
Dim Inbox As MAPIFolder
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set ns = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")


Set Inbox = ns.Session.Folders(1).Folders("Inbox")
MsgBox "Folder: " & ns.Session.Folders(1).Name & "     Inbox: " & Inbox.Name

Here's something else to try.  This will list all of your mailboxes by name in the debug window.  Pick the one that you need, and copy/paste that mailbox name from the debugger window into your original code where you have "Mailbox - test".  Again, your code seems syntactically correct and works for me - so my guess is that you have a typo or are otherwise not using the correct mailbox name.


Sub ListMailboxes()
Dim MyOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim MyMail As Outlook.MailItem
Dim ns As Outlook.Namespace
Dim Inbox As MAPIFolder
Dim I as integer
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set ns = olApp.GetNamespace("MAPI")

For I = 1 to ns.Session.Folders.Count
         debug.print ns.Session.Folders(I).Name
Next
End Sub

Hi mibizup,

I tested the example code check the result and modified as below then it works.
I removed the mailbox and it works, I updated as below:
Set Inbox = ns.Session.Folders("test").Folders("Inbox")

Thanks for your help
