Check Outlook Drafts folder for messages using Outlook VBA

Programatticaly check for draft messages using Outlook VBA

Sub Check_Drafts_Folder()

Dim oNS As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim oFld As Outlook.Folder
Dim oItems As Outlook.Items

On Error GoTo OL_Error

Set oNS = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI")

Set oFld = oNS.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderDrafts)

Set oItems = oFld.Items

If oItems.Count <> 0 Then
MsgBox "There are some messages in the draft"
End If

Exit Sub
MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

The program uses the MAPI Namespace and Draft DefaultFolder.

The only supported name space type is "MAPI". The GetNameSpace method is functionally equivalent to the Session property, which was introduced in Microsoft Outlook 98.

A Folder object that represents the default folder of the requested type for the current profile. If the default folder of the requested type does not exist, for example, because olFolderManagedEmail is specified as the FolderType but the Managed Folders group has not been deployed, then GetDefaultFolder will return Null (Nothing in Visual Basic).
