There is an option under the contacts folder's properties called "Show this folder as an e-mail address book.". How can I set this property programatically when adding a new contacts folder?

Thanks.

Hi Oliver.

Try the following code:

MAPIFolder.ShowAsAddressBook = True

This code works in Outlook XP and 2003.

Well, this property does not exist in Outlook 2000.
What would be the equivilant for Outlook 2000?

Thanks.

Oliver.

I think it is not possible to set the "Show this folder as an e-mail address book" property programatically because the Outlook 2000 object model doesn't contain the ShowAsAddressBook property for the Outlook.MAPIFolder interface.

Yes, you are right. Microsoft has just confirmed the same. It's only possible for Outlook 2002 and up.

Thank you.
