This MAPI method is not exported by Pywin32 today. It would be nice to have the ability to delete MAPI folders programatically.

I can see there is an EmptyFolder() implemented, and documented at:
http://timgolden.me.uk/__pywin32-docs/PyIMAPIFolder____EmptyFolder_meth.html
<http://timgolden.me.uk/pywin32-docs/PyIMAPIFolder__EmptyFolder_meth.html>)

...
so why not DeleteFolder? Should I be looking in some other place?

I'm afraid that simply isn't exposed by pywin32 as yet.

Hi Mark, is there anything I can do (like raise a feature request) or
something that will put it somewhere in your roadmap?

A feature request at sourceforce.net/projects/pywin32 would do that.

Cheers,

Mark
