How Can I Search Items With EmailMessageSchema.From RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to search inbox with the From field.So I build the constrains with the code below:

            var fromConstrains = new SearchFilter.ContainsSubstring();
            fromConstrains.PropertyDefinition = EmailMessageSchema.Sender;
            fromConstrains.Value = model.From;

    Then I use the "andType" to search my Inbox,because the from is just like 李晓强<> so,the users input "李晓强" as the query condition, I sure have some email from 李晓强,but it did not search out any one....

    It just puzzled me...

  • If you just want to search the FromName then I would suggest you use the PR_Sender_Name Extended property (equivilent to the urn:schemas:httpmail:fromname) instead eg
       ItemView iv = new ItemView(2000);
       ExtendedPropertyDefinition PR_SENDER_NAME = new ExtendedPropertyDefinition(3098, MapiPropertyType.String);
       SearchFilter sf = new SearchFilter.ContainsSubstring(PR_SENDER_NAME, "Text to search");
       FindItemsResults<Item> fiItems = service.FindItems(WellKnownFolderName.Inbox, sf, iv);
       foreach (Item itItem in fiItems.Items) {

  • What version of Exchange are you using ? You said you using Anytype why what other properties are you querying on ? If your using 2010 then you could try an AQS query if you use canonical AQS query that should be reasonably language neutral




    <Item> fiitems = service.FindItems(WellKnownFolderName.Inbox, "System.Message.FromName:\"Glen\"", iv);

  • Unless the search required is in Public Folders, which don't allow AQS.
