We have an add-in that uses UserProperties for storing additional data about outlook items. Everything appears to be working correctly, but some users are now complaining that our "internal" data is printing when they print an item. When we add the UserProperty it is done as:

prop = ((Outlook._MailItem)olitem).UserProperties.Add("TimeMattersID", Outlook.OlUserPropertyType.olText, true, System.Type.Missing);

This is a direct port of some VB6 code that did the same thing. Strange part is that the VB6 code did not allow the userproperty to print.

Anyone experience something like this? Any thoughts how to get around it?

Thanks,
Todd

Hi Todd.

Try to set 'false' as the third parameter in the Add method.

Sergey,
Tried that one. It didn't appear to make a difference.

I also tryed setting the last parm to olOutlookInternal.

Todd, do the users print Outlook Items via Print button in Outlook inspector?
BTW, the 'false' parameter doesn't change the state of the current view if the property has already been added with the 'true' parameter. In this case you need to remove it via the 'Customize View' dialog in Outlook.
