i created a custom form in outlook and am adding it in inbox via code. my inbox super grid is set to be sort by 'received date' which means i am not able to see my newly added form. i can see my newly added form at the bottom of my outlook super grid under the section 'None'. i guess it is due to the fact that i never set my item's 'received' property. my issue is if i set this property in code, it shows me that it is a read only field. any suggestions about a workaround?

i am using "Add-in Express 2010 for Microsoft Office and .net, Standard" , v604-b3056 . i intend to use this feature in outlook 2010 professional.

Hi Gaurav,

You are right! The Outlook Object Model provides the RecievedTime property (of the MailItem, MobileIte and etc. classes) which is read-only. As a workaround you may try to use a low level Extended MAPI code to set this property or use any third-party library (for example, Redemption).
.NET, Extended MAPI, Windows Phone & RT
