Extracting mails



Here, I am putting some sample code for extractng mails and attachments from Outlook 2003 using VB.NET.

The program will extarct the mail from selected folder in Outlook 2003.

For this, first add a reference to Outlook.

****write this code for getting the mails ***************

Dim objOL As Outlook.Application
Dim objNS As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim objFolder As Outlook.Folders
Dim Item As Object
Dim myItems As Outlook.Items
Dim x As Int16

objOL = New Outlook.Application()
objNS = objOL.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Dim olfolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
olfolder = objOL.GetNamespace("MAPI").PickFolder
myItems = olfolder.Items

Dim i As Integer
For x = 1 To myItems.Count myItems.Item(x).SenderEmailAddress)
    messagebox.showmyItems.Item(x).Body) myItems.Item(x).to)
    messagebox.showmyItems.Item(x).ReceivedByName) myItems.Item(x).ReceivedOnBehalfOfName)
    messagebox.showmyItems.Item(x).CC) myItems.Item(x).ReceivedTime)
Next x

***********for getting attachments use this code******************

Dim Atmt As Outlook.Attachment

For Each Atmt In Item.Attachments
    filename = "C:\Email Attachments\" + Atmt.FileName
Next Atmt

Try it out .. and let me know if there is any problem.
