Outlook inspector for sent mails RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I need to show a custom tab in outlook inspector window but just when the inspector window is related to a sent mail. In my getVisible event I get the mailItem object, then the folder referencing as mailitem.Parent, and then I check if that folder is the same as the default sent mail folder of the account used to send the mail (referenced as mailitem.SendUsingAccount).

    Is that correct or there is another way?

  • I'd rather check the MailItem.ReceivedByName if I were you (along with the Sent property) : that property is populated for the messages that were received, but not for those that were sent.
