I want to create an Outlook MailItem and save it in a non-editable format. I

tried using Outlook Object Modal in

VB.NET(app.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem)) but it creates a draft

and i m not able to change it to a non-editable mail like a received /sent

item. Then i tried an extended mapi sample as well written in VC++.NET but i

am still not able to figure it out as to what is the parameter that i have to

change to make the mail non-editable.

NOTE: I just want to save the mail and not sending it to anybody.

Any email is editable. Even a received email can be edited, just select

Edit, Edit Message.

If you want to simulate a sent message you either have to use Extended MAPI

or Redemption (www.dimastr.com/redemption). The way I do it in Redemption is

to create a new mail item, mark it as sent and set various properties such

as sent, sent on behalf of, received, etc. before saving the item for the

first time. Once the item is saved at all it cannot be faked as a sent or

received item.

The process would be the same with Extended MAPI.

Re: Create a new Outlook MailItem in an Outlook folder(not a draft

I solved it................

The .NET sample i was trying tht day was actually involving multiple

projects in the same solution n my changes to unsent flag weren't getting

reflected in the test project within tht solution. BT later, i figured it out

tht th .NET compiler was giving dll copying errors while individually

compiling VC++ project dll(Extended MAPI) within tht sol. nd so i copied the

dll manually to the expected location in the test project folder n it worked

out..........

Though i still dnt know why tht dll copying error is coming bt i dnt need to

know either right now, i ll figure it out later on in free time..............
