NameSpace.GetRecipientFromID Method (Outlook)
Returns the Recipient object that is identified by the specified entry ID (if valid).
This method is used to ease the transition between MAPI and OLE/Messaging applications and Microsoft Outlook.
This method is similar to the GetRecipientFromID method of the Account object. If there are multiple Microsoft Exchange accounts in the current profile, use the GetRecipientFromID method for the corresponding account.
This Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example gets the entry ID of the first recipient for the first item in the Items collection for the Inbox folder, uses GetRecipientFromID to obtain the recipient from the entry ID, and displays the recipient name.
Public Sub GetRecipientFromID() Dim inbox As Outlook.folder Dim mail As Outlook.MailItem Dim rcp As Outlook.Recipient Dim rcp1 As Outlook.Recipient Dim strEntryId As String 'Get Inbox folder. Set inbox = Application.session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) ' Get the first item in the Inbox. Set mail = inbox.items(1) ' Get the first recipient on that first item. Set rcp = mail.Recipients.Item(1) ' Get the string entry ID of the recipient. strEntryId = rcp.entryID ' Get the Recipient object based on the string entry ID. Set rcp1 = Application.session.GetRecipientFromID(strEntryId) MsgBox "Recipient Name: " & rcp1.name, vbInformation End Sub
