Hi,

Now I run the following code in Outlook 2010, it shows security warning

dialog. My question is that how to go without the dialog.

MailItem oMailItem

' here it is true that oMailItem is valid object

str = oMailItem.Body ' this line cause security warning

The test is

"A program is trying to acces e-mail address information stored in Outlook.

If this is unexpected, click Deny and verity your antivirus software is

up-to-data.

For more information about e-mail safety and how you might be able to avoid

getting this warning, click help."

Next is a check box for "Allow access for" right is a dropdown combobox "1

minute"

The last is 3 buttons as "Allow", "Deny" and "Help", in which "Deny" is

default one.

=======================================

For what I know now is that when calling oMailItem.Body, Outlook will

extract string text from RTF format stored internally (but I am not sure if

it is so in Outlook 2010). And both Body & HTMLBody are protected now. Any

access to them will prompt warning dialog unless anti-virus program is

up-to-date. Unfortunately our program will assume to running in user's

machine with/without anti-virus applications.

=======================================

I also try to use MAPI library with C++ code. It has no security warning

dialog when I get the email text like code:

IMessage* pMsg;

IStream* pStream;

STATSTG stg = {0};

> ...

// here pMsg & pStream are valid pointers

pMsg->OpenProperty(PR_BODY, &IID_IStream, STGM_READWRITE, 0,

(IUnknown**)&istream);

pStream->Stat(*stg, 0);

int bodysize = stg.cbSize.LowPart; // won't bother checking for >2gb messages!

char* bodybuf = new char[bodysize+1];

ULONG red;

HRESULT hr = pStream->Read(bodybuf, bodysize, &red);

// I am able to get email body text without security warning

// however if I try to change email body, return code is "access deny" like

std::string strtest;

strtest = bodybuf;

strtest += " test";

hr = pStream->->Write(strtest, strtest.GetLength(), &red);

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Tom

The important part is missing: how do you get the MailItem? You need to

derive it from the instrinsic Application object, that is not from an

Application variable created by GetObject or CreateObject.

Re: How to get MailItem.Body without security warning in Outlook 2

Hi Michael,

I get the MailItem object as following code sample. The code is written in

C++ with Outlook import.

=======================================

#import "C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE14\mso.dll"

#import "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\MSOUTL.OLB"

rename_namespace("Outlook")

void test()

{

Outlook::_ApplicationPtr spApp("Outlook.Application");

if (NULL == spApp)

{

hr = spApp.CreateInstance("Outlook.Application");

}

if (spApp)

{

// from now on spApp is the valid Outlook.Application object in VBA

Outlook::_ExplorerPtr spExplorer = spApp->ActiveExplorer();

if (spExplorer)

{

Outlook::SelectionPtr spSel = spEcplorer->GetSelection();

if (spSel && spSel->Count == 1) // if only 1 selection

{

// assume that the selection is a mail item

Outlook::_MailItemPtr spMailItem = spSel->Item(1);

// the following line will bring up the security warning

dialog

::OutputDebugString(spMailItem.Body);

}

}

}

}

=======================================

Other than the security warning dialog and if I click "allow", the output

text is exactly as the content of the email item I selected.

Thanks,

Tom
