Access to Body restricted when replying a rights management(RM) restricted mail (VSTO, Outlook 2007, 2010) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    if you reply to a mail which is protected with Microsoft rights management you cannot access anymore the body of the reply mailitem. WordEditor, HtmlBody, Body are null.

    As for security reasons I think this behavior is implemented correctly, but this is a problem for any addin which wants to add text to the body in the ItemSend method.

    Has anybody experience with OOM and RMS?

    Is there a possibility to access the body somehow? In google I haven't found anything regarding OOM and RMS.

    Regards Mark

  • Hello Wompi,

    Did you try to use a low-level code - Extended MAPI or any other wrappers like Redemption?

    You can read more about RMS and Exchange server in the Information Rights Management article.

  • Hi Eugene,

    thank your for your answer.

    No, until now I only looked up the values in the Outlook object model.

    I also still have to check if the properties are available through PropertyAccessor.

    Extended MAPI would be my last choice as it is difficult to integrate into the .Net world.

    I will see what I can find. I hoped that anybody here already have some experience with RMS and OOM to point out a possible way.

    Regards Mark

  • Hi Wompi,

    The Outlook object model will restrict an access to properties. I even suspect that PropertyAccessor  will not help. You need to use a low level code instead.

  • Hi Eugene,

    thank you very much.

    I will have a look into extended MAPI.

    Regards Mark
