Outlook Public folder sub directory access?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know if it is possible to search/access a subfolder in the public folder directory?  I am able to access teh folders at the root but I need to get to a subfolder.

    For Instance:

    Public Folders Root\POW\MIA - I can get to the "POW" folder but I need to access the emails in the "MIA" .  I can not seem to find anyway to get there.

  • Since you can't use FindFolder to do a deep traversal on a public folder, you'll need to make multiple calls to FindFolder and specify the parent folder id.  I found this article and this article which contain examples of how it can be done.
