Hi All,

I want to save currently selected mail item through my plugin.
I tried cant find class that gives me option to save.

What I want to achieve is to automate the File -> Save As.. option .
so that I can save the currently selected item (eg file " RE Add-in Express com feedback.msg")

I have the outlook object.

else if (application is Outlook.Application)
{
outlookApp = (Outlook.Application)application;
wordApp = null;
excelApp = null;
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("u in oulook application");
}


thanks
Thomas

Hi Thomas.

You can use the SaveAs method of the Outlook._MailItem interface.
E.g.
olMailItem.SaveAs("<Path>", Outlook.OlSaveAsType.olMSG);

Hi Sergey,

do u mean to use..
Outlook._MailItem oMailItem = (Outlook._MailItem)outlookApp.CreateItem(Outlook.OlItemType.olMailItem);
oMailItem.SaveAs("C:\test.msg", Outlook.OlSaveAsType.olMSG);
this doesnt give back the currently selected item which is no surprise..
so this giving me the error
"Exception Target Site: Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

what I want is the currently selected item by the outlook user and save to a location. Any idea how I can find that in outlook app.
I am trying to save that selected message to back up location.

Thanks
Thomas
