read receipts while processing emails

I am saving emails to an HTML file and then moving the file to another folder.

I am guessing at this point in my code (because I did not manage to see

which step):

olMail.UnRead = False

on one of the messages the code stopped because there was a prompt to send a

read receipt. How can I automatically send the read receipt or bypass the

message?

I know there is a global option to automatically send read receipts, I am

looking to see how I might be able to do this programmatically on each

message.

It might be possible to bypass it by setting the ReadReceiptRequested

property of the MailItem to False.

Changing the global option doesn't work as that setting is stored in the

registry, and Outlook reads those settings only once at startup.

Michael,

Many thanks for you responce.

This is not make any difference:

olMail.ReadReceiptRequested = False

olMail.UnRead = False <---- still get a message requiring user

invention

I have just answered Yes and ticked the box to all take this answer

everytime and that works fine, of course this would need to be set at least

once on every machine this code is run on and if anyone resets it I and back

to where I started.

What happens is you save the item after setting

olMail.ReadReceiptRequested = False?

Michael,

I will have to have another play and see. For now I have just said "yes" to

all in the global setting.

Thanks for your help.

On the MAPI level (C++ or Delphi), you would need to call

IMessage.SetReadFlag() passing the SUPPRESS_RECEIPT flag.

Outlook Object Model won't let you do that, <plug> Redemption can do that -

use RDOMail.MarkRead method - see

http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/rdo/rdomail.htm </plug
