Sub StoreData() 
 Dim oInbox As Folder 
 Dim myStorage As StorageItem 
 Dim myPrivateProperty As UserProperty 
 
 Set oInbox = Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 ' Get an existing instance of StorageItem by subject 
 Set myStorage = oInbox.GetStorage("My Private Storage", olIdentifyBySubject) 
 
 'Remove the storage permanently assuming it's old 
 myStorage.Delete 
 Set myStorage = Nothing 
 
 'Get a new instance of StorageItem in the Inbox 
 Set myStorage = oInbox.GetStorage("My Private Storage", olIdentifyBySubject) 
 
 'Create custom property for Order Number 
 Set myPrivateProperty = myStorage.UserProperties.Add("Order Number", olNumber) 
 
 'Store application data in the Order Number property 
 myPrivateProperty.Value = 1000
