How do I avoid hitting the limit on simultaneous open items?

I have a routine outside of Outlook which compares our company contact list against our employee database and deletes from the Contact List whom are no longer employed.

This works properly for awhile, but then I get this error message:

"Your server administrator has limited the number of items you can open simultaneously. Try closing messages you have opened or removing attachments and images from unsent messages you are composing."

It happens on this line: oContact = myFolder.Items.Find("[EMPID2] = " & mlEmp_ID)


The majority of records the oContact will be nothing, so the If Then clause staring with "SafeContact.Item = oContact" is not reached.

There doesn't appear to be a close for the SafeContact, although I don't think that's the issue. How can I make this work?



Private Sub DeleteTerminatedRecipients()

Dim myOutlook As Outlook.Application
Dim myNameSpace As Outlook.NameSpace
Dim myFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
Dim oContact As Outlook.ContactItem
Dim SafeContact As SafeContactItem
Dim Utils As Redemption.IMAPIUtils
Dim bWeCreated As Boolean

Using cnVisExtProd As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=SERVER.com;Initial Catalog=CATALOG;User ID=USERID;Password=PASSWORD")

Try
myOutlook = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")

Catch ex As Exception

myOutlook = New Outlook.Application

End Try

myNameSpace = myOutlook.GetNamespace("MAPI")
myNameSpace.Logon() ' "ACCOUNT", "PASSWORD", False, False

If UCase(Environ$("Username")) = "MYNAME" Then
myFolder = myNameSpace.Folders("Public Folders - MY EMAIL").Folders("All Public Folders").Folders("Contacts").Folders(gsPublicContactsFolder)
Else
myFolder = myNameSpace.Folders("Public Folders - dlbadmin").Folders("All Public Folders").Folders("Contacts").Folders(gsPublicContactsFolder)
End If


'DELETE EMPLOYEES NO LONGER EMPLOYED

mlEmp_ID = drAcula.Item("EMP")

SafeContact = CreateObject("Redemption.SafeContactItem") 'Create an instance of Redemption.SafeContactItem
oContact = myFolder.Items.Find("[EMPID2] = " & mlEmp_ID)

If Not oContact Is Nothing Then

PS - The limit is around 250. I don't wasnt to increase the limit. I want to know how to close my items so I don't come anywhere near the limit.
