Better ask this in an Outlook or Exchange forum. It has little to do
with Access.

The way I did it is to first use OutlookSpy utility to get the
FolderId and the InfoStoreId of the toplevel folder. There are other
ways, but this was the easiest for me. Then you can use
GetFolderFromID to create a Outlook.MapiFolder object. From there you
can traverse the tree, as well as enumerate and manipulate the objects
in a folder. Of course security still exists, and only what is allowed
interactively will be allowed programmatically.

If you understand automation and object models, it's not too hard to
do. One complication is that for some operations the Outlook object
model is not powerful enough, and you would have to fall back on
something like CDO.
