Rereading your posts (which wasn't easy to do -- please quote the relevant

portion of previous posts to keep the conversation in one place), I have to

wonder whether you originally were thinking about implementing this as a

custom form project by having the server change the value of the

MessageClass property for certain items. I wouldn't recommend that, because

unless your server is set to strip TNEF content from outgoing messages,

using a custom message class will cause problems with attachments on any of

these messages that are forwarded to non-Outlook recipients. If that's not

an issue, the relevant events are Read and Open and can be inserted into the

VBScript editor with the Script | Event Handler command.

However, that still doesn't address the issue of what's going to happen to

the original message content, which you said you wanted to preserve.

I think my lack of knowledge on the subject is creating confusion.

My requirement is to detect emals that have a set of keywords. When such

messages are detected by the service I wrote that runs on Exchange Server, it

adds a record into the database (that's also stored on Exchange server

machine). This flagging process takes place immediately when a message is

received by Exchange Server.

Then I want to avoid users from seeing such flagged message contents, by

runnig a check at the time of loading the message. Every message selection

event should triger a database check against the message's ID and if it's a

marked message, I want to prevent the user from seeing the contents and show

a generic message such as "This message is under auditor's review and will be

available later.". The same thing is done by OWA customization so that OWA

users wont see the contents either.

With the amount of knowledge I had on the subject, I assumed by creating a

new IPM.Notes form which runs the necessary checking and replacement

operations as a set of macros, and then publishing these forms into

Organizational Forms Library I'll be able to achieve my requirement. However

from the information I got from you I'm in doubt whether my approach is

correct. If I can avoid installing anything on users' machines and still do

what I want, it'll be great.
