// Select the folder from position 0 in the Folders Collection and assign it to the variable oFolder.
var oFolder = collFolders.item(0); 

// Get the Messages Collection from folder oFolder, and assign it to the variable collMsgs.
var collMsgs = oFolder.Messages; 

// Get the message from position 2 in the Messages Collection and assign it to the variable oMsg.
// oMsg is an instance of a System.MessageStoreMessage object.
