[Outlook] Getting the folder icons.

I have an Outlook add-in. It has a form and on that form I have a popup menu. The menu items are: 'Post', 'Note', 'Task', 'Journal' and as you might guess, they create outlook items of that specific type.
I also would like to have the correct glyphs for these menu items, which are basically the glyphs shown in the Explorer for the related folders. (Inbox, Notes, Tasks and Journal)

My question is if there's any way to retrieve the proper glyphs (icons) from Outlook itself or do I just have to find similar icons and add them to my project? It would be nicer if I could access those Outlook glyphs directly and use them for the popup menu.
With kind regards,

Hi Wim,

I would recommend you finding and using similar icons.
