NameSpace.CreateRecipient Method

Office 2007
Creates a Recipient object.

Syntax

expression.CreateRecipient(RecipientName)

expression   A variable that represents a NameSpace object.

Parameters

NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
RecipientNameRequiredStringThe name of the recipient; it can be a string representing the display name, the alias, or the full SMTP e-mail address of the recipient.

Return Value
A Recipient object that represents the new recipient.

Remarks

This method is most commonly used to create a Recipient object for use with the GetSharedDefaultFolder method, for example, to open a delegator's folder. It can also be used to verify a given name against an address book.

Example

This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example uses the GetSharedDefaultFolder method to resolve the Recipient object representing Dan Wilson, and then returns Dan's shared default Calendar folder. To run this example, replace 'Dan Wilson' with a valid recipient name and make sure the calendar is shared and you have permissions to view the calendar.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub ResolveName()
    Dim myNamespace As Outlook.NameSpace
    Dim myRecipient As Outlook.Recipient
    Dim CalendarFolder As Outlook.Folder
	
    Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
    Set myRecipient = myNamespace.CreateRecipient("Dan Wilson")
    myRecipient.Resolve
    If myRecipient.Resolved Then
        Call ShowCalendar(myNamespace, myRecipient)
    End If
End Sub

Sub ShowCalendar(myNamespace, myRecipient)
   Dim CalendarFolder As Folder

    Set CalendarFolder = _
        myNamespace.GetSharedDefaultFolder _
        (myRecipient, olFolderCalendar)
    CalendarFolder.Display
End Sub
