Dear all,

I developed an Outlook Addin which adds before any email being sent a Delivery Report request (OriginatorDeliveryReportRequested) but I would like to know how can I retrieve the delivery report response on my Add in ?

Thanks,
Franck.

PS: I'm using Visual Studio 2019 / C#

Hello Franck,

I would find such a report in your Outlook and study it. As far as I remember this should be a ReportItem, not a MailItem. What to do next would depends on what information that report provides.

Andrei,

on the same topic, it seems that Delivery Reports used by Outlook (not read report, only delivery -> Return-Receipt-To: ) are not supported by most of SMTP Servers, I read that some Providers blocks such mechanism.

Hence, is it possible to add some elements on the low level SMTP communication with the Mail server such as
RCPT TO:<> NOTIFY=SUCCESS
?

Hello Franck,

No, this isn't supported by the Outlook object model.
