Hi,

which is the better way to store user data in an outlook item? (in Outlook 2007)

To use user properties of the item or to add a hidden attachment and to read and store the form data in there when opening / closing

the form.

How much data? Outlook items are limited to 32kb each, but that doesn't

count any attachments. If it's a small amount of data, a property would be

far more efficient than an attachment.

Oh thanks Sue, I didn't know that there is ths 32kb limitation.

It's only some additional fields, so user property will be they for me to go.
