How to send using a specific account?

Hi

I can sucessfully trap a sendmail event but how do I send using a specific account?

For example, based on the content in the mail, I want force Outlook to send using one of the user account profiles set up. (Like clicking on the accounts button in a new message window)

I figured it would be a function of the 'MailItem' interface, but I just can't seem to find it. :)

Thanks in advance

Marc

Hi Marc,

Unfortunately the Outlook Object Model doesn't contain any properties/methods to access e-mail accounts. But:
- you can find an account list in the windows registry
- a specific account can be set only via Extended MAPI or probably CDO

Mmm. Thats a real show-stopper for my app! :)

"- a specific account can be set only via Extended MAPI"

I know it is not strictly an Add-In-Express issue but can you guide me in the right direction as to how I might do this from the 'onsend' event.

If I can achieve this, my only hurdle would only be to put something in in the users outbox to indicate a send had been made.

You help appreciated

Marc

Ok, let's try. The Outlook's _MailItem interface has the MAPIObject property (IDispatch). This is the Extended MAPI IMessage interface. Then you will need such methods as GetProps, SetProps, SaveChanges, etc.
