You need to add VCL to the Project | Options | Unit scope names to make it compile.

Sorry, can't actually remember where I picked it up from - it is Day1 trying to get my head around the product.

Hello Jason,

Thank you! We are unable to reproduce the issue using the sample project labeled as How to scan Outlook folder at https://www.add-in-express.com/support/addin-delphi.php. For us, VCL is already on that list. We see that VCL is missing in the .DPROJ. We suppose that the IDE has added it to that list for us.

Just replying to myself. I couldn't actually get this to show itself in Outlook 2016 - or more like I don't know what I am looking for. It started working once I registered an additional one - exciting!

It seems to stall for a while, even with a very simple office365 account with about 10 folders total. In a normal VCL application I would either:
- put it in a thread OR
- for simplicity, add an Application.processMessages to the loop

Are both these OK to do? I clearly need to read more of the docs, but any hints? I am actually going to need to do this on pretty huge structures (5K+ folders), so intend storing a cache structure, so don't need to redo every time.

TIA
JAC

Thank you for the quick response. That is strange. I don't normally have to add VCL and your other examples already have them. Anyway, I got it working now.

I may start a new thread and explain the main things I am trying to achieve at the moment, if that is alright. With so little time on it, it would be great to get a good steer so I don't spend time going round in circles - it all hinges around Outlook at the moment, so I will look at all the Outlook examples.
Regards,
Jason
