Hi,

I am reading the EnrtyID of emails of MSO and placing them a DB so that

these mails can be referred later.

Noticed that the first 8 characters of the EntryID are always "0", although

the total length is 48 characters.

eg.

EnrtyID of a mail 1 - 00000000DDFB7C0AA597DC458A4ED925151DDCC2C4DE2400

EnrtyID of a mail 2 - 00000000F1D374F05B01E942B383CF867654BD38A42E2700

Are these first 8 characters used? or is it being used when the volume of

mails increases?

or if environment changes such as the OS?

Please could someone advice.

There's no guarantee that any EntryID will have any specific pattern (that

depends on that store provider) or be of any specific length. Don't assume

the length will always be 48 characters long.
