Retrieving email address of sender of mailitem


How can i retrieve the email address of the sender of a mail item? i have looked at various solutions on the web, most involving the use of GetMessage but this is not a method of _Namespace in outlook2000. Can you please tell me what I am doing wrong?

Hi Phil,

At the moment only Outlook 2003 has the SenderEmailType and SenderEmailAddress properties in its Object Model. For all earlier versions you will have to use Extended MAPI or CDO to get access to these properties. BTW, as far as I remember the GetMessage is part of Extended MAPI.
