List of Forms in a Public Folder

Is there a way to retrieve via VBScript a list of forms in a particular
public folder?

At 4:14 AM, I woke up realizing that if you could get a list of forms you
could use that as a work around to only publishing a form to one location.
The idea would be to create a custom form that serves as a form selector
listing available forms. I'm about to release several message-related custom
forms that will be published to a public folder, but seriously wanted to
provide them via the Actions menu on the user's inbox.

You may have bigger fish to fry: If the forms are published only in a public folder, they won't operate properly as message forms. Why? Because the recipient's copy of Outlook won't know to look in a particular public folder to retrieve the form definition.

The form definition will not be sent with the item. So is it possible to list
the forms in a public folder?

Yes, using CDO 1.21, Redemption, or in Outlook 2007, the new StorageItem object, to work with the hidden messages that contain the form definitions. Which is your preference?
