Retrieving the sender mail adress without CDO



Is it possible to retrieve the sender mail address from a mailItem in outlook 2000-2002 without usind CDO in C# or VB.Net?

I have found an msdn article which first creates a new mail item using reply property of the original mailItem, then retrieving the recipient of this reply mail. It was written for vba, but when I tried it in I keep getting ambigious reference error whenever I try to use the Reply property (or method I guess) of a mailItem. Can not invoke it from object either.

Any suggesstions about the reply issue, or about the general problem?
Thanks in advance,

Hi Serhat.

Yes, it is possible via Extended MAPI.
You can download an example here:

It works like charm.
I used to think that it was not possible to do extended mapi programming in .Net
Thanks a lot.
