(VB.NET) Outlook -- Search Multiple Folders

I don't yet see how it's possible to do a recursive search of Outlook folders using the Microsoft Graph API. My best guess is to somehow use OData v4.0's $expand query option, but the hierarchical structure of the "mailFolder" and "messages" Microsoft Graph resources don't quite fit. Suggestions are welcome and can be sent to support@chilkatsoft.com.

This example will iterate over a list of folder previously obtained by a recursive traversal of the Outlook mail folders. (See the link in the example code below.)

A separate search is performed on each desired folder, and the results are combined into a single result set.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.68 or greater.

This example applies to: Exchange Online | Office 365 | Hotmail.com | Live.com | MSN.com | Outlook.com | Passport.com
