Getting emails from address book using outlook object, and other folders

Sample screenshot


This is an sample code using VB version 6, and it can be converted copy/paste to VB.NET.

Actually this sample code gets Outlook Address book, and user names, and emails using X400 format.

And also you can get all other folders such as Calender, Contacts, Delete Item, draft, Inbox...etc.

What you need to do to run this sample is just to get sure that your outlook is opened in your machine, and if you have a pssword in your own mail box it will ask you to enter it if it was closed.
