Outlook 2013 Inline Message HTMLBody missing details RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an Outlook 2013 VSTO add-in that was setup using a working Outlook 2010 VSTO add-in.  One difference is that I need to handle Inline Responses.  I am finding that adding text to the HTMLBody programmatically, gives me strange results.  It seems like HTMLBody for the Inline Message is missing part of the message. I came across this link:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/outlookdev/thread/596ee5d2-d20c-42bc-a7a4-f33dc2e625e6

    I would like to know what the status of this fix is, if possible, as it appears to be related to what I'm running into.

    Is there a workaround?

  • So far this has not been fixed. I'm hoping for an SP1 fix, but my advice from that other thread is the same as then. If this is affecting you and you need a hot fix then open a support case on the bug.

  • I've opened a support case with Microsoft.  I created a project for them with the following lines of code:

    Public Sub btnTest_Click(ByVal control As Office.IRibbonControl)
         Dim exp As Outlook.Explorer
         Dim oMail As Outlook.MailItem
         exp = control.Context
         oMail = exp.ActiveInLineResponse
         ' at this point you will see that HTMLBody does not contain the text typed into the Reply message
         oMail.HTMLBody = Regex.Replace(oMail.HTMLBody, "\*\*\*insert\*\*\*","testing", RegexOptions.IgnoreCase)
         ' at this point, your text has disappeared, even if it was not entered as ***insert*** 
    End Sub 

    I'll post the progress here.
