Help. I am pretty confused. In Outlook 2003 I was able to use addressentry.fields(?) to programatically gather all data known about an addressentry. I would spin through all possible field items by number and eventually find all data available. However the "fields" method was removed in Outlook 2007 and 2010. I am at a total loss how to access the data now. In my company's .details dialog box showing details of a GAL addressentry, one of the fields is labeled "Mailflow/Pouch Mail:". I suspect that is a custom field. Can someone state or show me specifically with sample code how to gather the value from each field in the .details dialog box?

I have been unable to get much help from MS Help since Outlook 2007. The newer help interface has many deadends and almost NO sample code. I challenge you to get some sample code or list of PropTags from MS Help.

If you mean Help, as in F1's Help, you are right - it sucks. Big time... and is getting worse.




However, for peer-to-peer support, the MSDN forums are better suited to programming questions as we don't do much programming anymore and programmers don't hang out here. Several experienced Outlook developers as well as a few MSFT employees with dev experience "work" the MSDN forum and could probably answer your question in their sleep. :)
