Create an Historic Outlook MailItem - set details of SentOn

Carnubarnagra Published in 2013-09-16 19:55:48Z

I need to migrate a large number of emails from Lotus Notes to a Outlook MSG format.

I need to ensure that the MSG's represent the emails in their original Lotus Notes format, including date sent, sent by, etc, and all attachments.

I have created LotusScript code to extract the email data and attachments from the Lotus Notes databases and store in a SQL database with attachments on a file store. I now need to work on code to read this data and create the Outlook messages. I have the scaffolding of a C# .Net application in place, but am struggling with being able to set read-only properties of the Outlook message, such as SentOn.

How do I/Can I set the read-only properties of the Outlook MailItem?

Are you importing the messages to Outlook first?

If you only need to create standalone MSG files, you can use Redemption and its RDOSession.CreateMessageFromMsgFile method - http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/rdosession.htm - it returns an instance of the RDOMail object. You can set various RDOMail properties and call RDOMail.Save.

You need to login account before you can post.
