I want to select a specific Outlook (2010) folder, lets say for example an organization like that in my Outlook :
Dossiers personnels\Inbox
Dossiers personnels\SentItems

and some other folders like :

Dossiers personnels\Privé
Dossiers personnels\Privé\
Dossiers personnels\Privé\
Dossiers personnels\Privé\
Dossiers personnels\Privé\
Dossiers personnels\Privé\

I've declared :
Imports Microsoft.Office.Interop
Dim app As Outlook.Application
Dim ns As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim siFolder As Outlook.Folder = Nothing
app = New Outlook.Application()
ns = app.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Dim olFolders As Outlook.Folders = ns.Folders

I have no problem to select INBOX, with :
siFolder = CType(ns.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderInbox), Outlook.Folder)

and SENTITEMS Folders, with :
siFolder = CType(ns.GetDefaultFolder(Outlook.OlDefaultFolders.olFolderSentMail), Outlook.Folder)

But I don't know how to select the folder "Privé", then "Privé\", and so on ...

Thanks for your help.
