Hi,
i am using the following commands to connect Outlook to Matlab (with the intention to read mails):
outlook = actxserver('Outlook.Application');
mapi=outlook.GetNamespace('mapi');
Now, instead of using mapi.GetDefaultFolder(6) to get the inbox of the default mail account, i would like to get the inbox of other Outlook accounts.
Thanks in advance for your help

Hi,
You can select any of your Outlook accounts with the field mapi.Folders.Item.
You can refer to this github repo with the MATLAB function ReadOutlook2.m
