RDOAccount object

 

RDOAccount object represents an Outlook account (mail, store or address book).

 

Other account objects are derived from the RDOAccount object and, in addition to the RDOAccount properties and methods, they implement properties and methods specific to the particular provider (such as RDOPOP3Account.POP3_Server property for the POP3/SMTP accounts).

It can be one of the following objects (all derived from the RDOAccount object). Check the RDOAccount.AccountType property.

RDOPOP3Account - POP3/SMTP accounts

RDOMAPIAccount - MAPI accounts

RDOIMAPAccount - IMAP4 accounts

RDOHTTPAccount - HTTP (Hotmail, MSDN, etc) accounts

RDOLDAPAccount (derived from RDOMAPIAccount)- LDAP accounts

RDOExchangeAccount (derived from RDOMAPIAccount - Exchange account (includes primary, delegate and Public Folders stores)

RDOPSTAccount (derived from RDOMAPIAccount) - PST store account

RDOEASAccount (derived from RDOMAPIAccount) - EAS (Exchange Active Sync) store account

 

 

Returned by:

RDOAccounts.Item(Index)

RDOMail.Account

RDOStore.StoreAccount

 

The example below prints out POP3 server names for all POP3/SMTP accounts in the profile:

set Session = CreateObject("Redemption.RDOSession")
Session.MAPIOBJECT = Application.Session.MAPIOBJECT
set Accounts = Session.Accounts
for each Account in Accounts
  if Account.AccountType = 0 Then 'atPOP3
    Debug.Print "POP3 server for account " & Account.Name & ": " & Account.POP3_Server
  end if
next
