NameSpace.CreateRecipient Method (Outlook)

Creates a Recipient object.

Syntax

expression. CreateRecipient( _RecipientName_ )

expression A variable that represents a NameSpace object.

Parameters

Name Required/Optional Data Type Description
RecipientName Required String The 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.

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
