I have an addin which tracks users emails for attachment to a document management system. I am trying to pull the domain user details to add to the database using but it comes up blank in the add-in for outlook although this same line returns the correct information from a standard windows form

Is this an issue with outlook or the add-in as i desperatly need to know the person who is logged on to track the documents.

I use in C# .net 2:

//returns "i2limited\eura006" so parse to just return eura006
adloginname = System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToUpper();
int slashindex = adloginname.IndexOf(@"\");
adloginname = adloginname.Substring(slashindex + 1, adloginname.Length - slashindex - 1);

it strips out the domain and leaves just the user name as adloginname.

Hope it helps
