Hello
I have created a new folder in Outlook, in my inbox called NewFolder.
Could any of you give me an example on how to create a express region that will show up every time I click on my NewFolder in Outlook? I have tried now for a couple of days.
Perhaps it is something like the following in the express-class FormsManager.cs:
ADXOlForm2Item.FolderNames.AddRange(new string[] {"Inbox\\NewFolder"});

Kind regards from Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

Please note that you need to specify the full path to the folders. For example:

ADXOlForm1Item.FolderNames.AddRange(new string[] {"Personal folders\TEST","Personal folders\Inbox","Personal folders\Drafts"});


I.e. you need to specify the root folder too. In my Outlook the path to the Inbox folder is "Personal folders\\Inbox".
