VBA developers are very much familiar with the features of Microsoft .NET platform to develop custom AddIn for Office system... This tip is about to get an Outlook email entry id & programmatic way to retrieve the attachments and store into another location. A sample code example is given below:


<pre lang="cs>
private Outlook.Inspectors Inspectors;

private string _id;
public string Id
get { return _id; }
set { _id = value; }

private void ThisAddIn_Startup(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
Inspectors = this.Application.Inspectors;
Inspectors.NewInspector += new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.InspectorsEvents_NewInspectorEventHandler(GetMessageID);

private void GetMessageID(Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Inspector Inspector)
string strMsgID = string.Empty;

Outlook.MailItem _ObjMailItem = (Outlook.MailItem)Inspector.CurrentItem;

if (Inspector.CurrentItem is Outlook.MailItem)
_ObjMailItem = (Outlook.MailItem)Inspector.CurrentItem;
strMsgID = _ObjMailItem.EntryID;

foreach (Outlook.Attachment _attachment in _ObjMailItem.Attachments)
+ strMsgID
+ "-"
+ _attachment.FileName);

Id = strMsgID;

More information on Outlook.Inspectors can be found at this link.[^]
