Am looking with great interest at add-in express, but have a question:

Is it possible to manipulate the To, CC and BCC entries of a received email in the same way as Windows Messenger Live can do (by placing a green head next to an email item to signify that the email address is a contact that is online in Messenger Live)?

I have searched on the forum for the above but am struggling to get the info I am looking for.

Thank you

Mark

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately the Outlook Object Model doesn't provide any method/property for such task. Instead you can try to delve in the brushwood of Extended MAPI (FYI Outlook is a big wrapper around Extended MAPI).

As you see there is no easy way to manipulate these entries.
.NET, Extended MAPI, Windows Phone & RT

Thank you for the response.

Any sites you could point me at to get me started, or do you know of anyone else who has achieved this?

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately, we can't point at any sites.
Try to search at CodeProject, OutlookCode, MSDN.
