Your problem description is not quite complete. You have flagged C++ and mention Exchange and MAPI. Are you talking about using an SMTP sender written in C++ ... or you want to know how to write an SMTP client for Exchange?

There are many SMTP clients out there (I wrote one but not for Exchange) and the documentation for each of these should include info on how to add an x-header.

Hi H.Brydon, thanks for your answer.
My goal is to write a code in C++ that can add an x-header in an Outlook mailitem. Can I ask insights from you about this?

The link has an example in VB for Outlook 2002 (I know you said C++).

One thing you can do is set up Outlook to send outgoing email through an external SMTP server (on your main mail account or a separate one) and you might have more options with the SMTP interface.

Also, the link at might show some insight into how to send headers of your choice in outgoing messages. You might be able to wangle this into something you can embed in "Stationary".

[I am not a fan of either Outlook or Exchange Server.]
