Here's the other method: Use the third-party Outlook Redemption library from

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption. It exposes this information as the

RDOUserProperty.Required property (Boolean).

Thanks sue, I was already considering buying redemption.

Finally I found the user property that made the problem. It was no longer bound to a control and I did not use it anymore. After

deleting in the field chooser everything is fine.
