With Category-Manager you can group your Outlook categories, share them with other users, filter a folder by category, automatically categorize new emails, and more. You can use the Addin even for IMAP.

This small sample demonstrates how to get the default account with the Redemption.

Public Function GetDefaultMailAccount() As String
  Dim Session As Redemption.RDOSession
  Dim List As Redemption.RDOAccountOrderList

  Set Session = CreateObject("redemption.rdosession")
  Session.LogOn ""

  ' The first object of the sorted list is always the default account
  Set List = Session.Accounts.GetOrder(acMail)
  GetDefaultMailAccount = List.Item(1).Name
End Function
