OL2003 & VB6:- "Could not send the message"

I've got some code that I'm changing the reply method for.

In order to ensure the original message is not changed, I'm creating a copy

of the item but with the reply method I get a "Could not send the message" -

any thoughts. An extract from the relevent section:-

Set CurrMail = application.ActiveInspector.CurrentItem

Set NewMail = CurrMail.Copy()

Set NewFwd = NewMail.Reply

NewFwd.Display

I know it's the .Reply because if I replace NewMail.Reply with

Currmail.reply it works perfectly.

Does it work better if you save the new copied item before calling Reply on

it?

Saving it first i.e. NewMail.Save makes no difference. I still get the same

error.

Then I'm inclined to think it's a timing problem. If putting a DoEvents in

between saving the item and calling Reply doesn't do the trick then after

saving get NewItem.EntryID, release all references to the objects and get a

new object using the saved EntryID and NameSpace.GetItemFromID() and see if

that does the trick.

Ken,

Thanks for that, the DoEvents didn't work. But the GetItemFromID() approach

did.

Unfortnatly, that moved me onto another hurdle.

The reason I'm copying is that I'm modifying the reply method, and wanted to

ensure that the original item was not affected. And this works fine as I

expected - except when I have an open attachment. The Currmail.Copy code

gives me a "An attachment to this message may be currently open in another

program......" message.

If I click YES to continue, the codes works fine. If NO, then NewMail is

empty and the code falls over with Object Expected.

Any thoughts, as to how I can work around this.

Umm, don't open the attachment?

Or handle the AttachmentRead() event on that item. That will tell you the

attachment was opened, use that to get the hWnd of the attachment window

using a Win32 API call such as FindWindow(), then send or post a WM_CLOSE

message to that window when you want to close the attachment window.

Unfortunatlly asking the users to close the attachment before clicking the

new button isn't really an option - similar with getting the code to close

the attachment prior to the copy.

Because I'm trying to code my own reply behaviour within an attatchment i.e.

I want to Create a "Reply with History" button while leaving the default

behaviour of Outlook to be Reply without history. Therefore when I had

issues around the behviour of Outlook when changing the properties of the

email, I felt that copying the item was the best approach.

Anu thoughts as to how Outlook manage it, because it's own reply button

doesn't prompt about an item being open when I use it's button.

I have no idea how Outlook does things like that internally. For a reply the

attachments on the original message are always stripped out anyway though,

so that is likely the answer. You might want to look at saving any

attachments that you want on the reply to a temp folder in the file system,

then adding them to the reply message rather than making a copy of the

original message.
