I can easily read through the folders in my Personal folder, but do not know how to read through the folders in the mail account circled in red below. Can it be done?

Ah well your question neither mentions VBA nor is it in any category that refers to VBA, So i answered what was asked.

What you want to do is something along the lines of...

Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim objFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Set objNS = GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set objFolder = objNS.Folders("Robin.Handler@gmail.com")
Set objFolder = objFolder.Folders("Inbox")

Example code expanded from.... http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9076634/get-reference-to-additional-inbox
