  • hi 

    this is a nice sample:

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

    For this, first add a reference to Outlook

    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

    Visual Studio .NET has built-in support for Office add-ins. You can create an Office add-in by following these steps:

    1. Press CTRL+SHIFT+N to display the New Project dialog box.
    2. Expand Other Projects in the Project Types tree view, then select Extensibility Projects.
    3. Double-click Shared Add-in in the Templates list view.
    4. The Visual Studio Add-in Wizard will launch and prompt you for information that it uses to create the Connect class and registry settings for your add-in.
    The Visual Studio Add-in Wizard, however, omits several blocks of code that are essential for an add-in to work properly in Outlook 2002. At present, there are also problems that relate to the interop assembly generated by Visual Studio .NET when you set a reference to the Outlook Object Library. An interop assembly contains metadata that helps your managed code to communicate with a COM-based type library, such as the Microsoft Outlook 10.0 Object Library. The interop assembly created by Visual Studio .NET is known as a TLBIMP-generated interop assembly. TLBIMP is invoked when you add a reference to your Visual Basic .NET project and select object libraries from the COM page of the References dialog box shown in Figure 1. For example, let's assume that you choose to add a reference to the Microsoft Outlook 10.0 Object Library. Once you add a reference to the Microsoft Outlook 10.0 Object Library to your project, a file named Outlook.Interop.dll will be created in the bin folder of your project.
