Hi,

I wander for the possibility to capture the opening date once the user open

a message from the outlook? Is there a way to do it by code?
 
Yes, that's possible. In VBA and VBScript, the Now() function returns the

current date/time. Exactly what you do with it depends on the details of

your scenario that you haven't shared with us yet.

Thank you very much; what I'm trying to do is to track when each user has

been received a particular e-mail and store that date in external container

(Database, SharePoint list …) this functionality is needed for auditing kind

of thing.

so the system will start sending an e-mails for several users and request

from them to start taking an action according to it and these actions must be

monitored by an auditors but in the same time the auditors do need to know if

the users read there e-mails or not

It could be done with either an add-in running on each user's machine or

with a custom message form published to the Organizational Forms library on

the company's Exchange server or to each user's Personal Forms library.

But before you start developing the spec for your application, you might

want to consider whether the built-in read receipt mechanism in Outlook

might be sufficient for your scenario.

Thank you for your replay, actually the receipt it might be going to be

perfect if the user won't be able to cancel it by clicking on don't sent a

receipt! How can I achieve the add-in or the publishing solution? What is the

deference's?

A published form is suitable only if your scenario extends only to people in

your own organization *and* if you can meet the publishing requirement I

mentioned earlier. Information on creating published custom forms and

Outlook add-ins is available on MSDN and at the Outlookcode.com web site.

It's not something that can be covered in a few sentences of a Usenet post.
