Rename Inbox Folder in Outlook 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Developers,

    I am working on a project where I am developing an Addin for Outlook 2010 using Visual Studio 2012. Is there any way to pragmatically rename the Inbox folder in an Outlook account? I primarily use Visual Basic, but I do have a little experience with C# as well. I'd prefer code samples in VB but could translate from C# if I need to.

    I appreciate you help.

  • Outlook Object Model will not let you do that, you would need to use Extended MAPi (C++ or Delphi) or Redemption for that.
