Access Outlook's Page Header and Footer

I have a requirement to have specific data that's stored in a user

property be displayed in the header and footer for printing purposes.

The only way I can think of doing this is by setting the Header/Footer

in the overall Outlook Page Setup, but I can't access those through the

inspector. Can this be done?

I know that if I'm able to do this via code, it will apply to all

emails but I'm hoping to blank it out after the email is printed.

Any help is appreciated.

I think to do what you want you will need to print to Word or some other

application that provides access to print setup and headers and footers.

Outlook doesn't provide any of that.

That's a good idea to print using word - thanks. The only problem I'm

running into now is that I want it to look as close as possible to how

it looks if I print from outlook.

How do I get the email content, including the to, from and subject to

copy over to a word document? Right now I can get the text of the

email by using the mailitem.body and I can write what I need to the

word headers and footers but I'm missing how to get the email header

info. I know I can get the recipients, subject, etc. one by one but is

there a way to get the whole thing as one, or is there a method that I

missing that will render the email and then I can copy and insert into

word?

You'd need to extract everything you want such as item.Subject, item.To,

etc. If you intend to do this often you probably should design a Word

template and open that to fill in bookmarks or fields with the data from

Outlook. That way you get a consistent look to the output. There isn't any

method that will do any rendering for you, just use of the Word object

model.

Internet mail headers aren't exposed in the Outlook object model, even in

Outlook 2007. For Outlook 2007 you could use the item.PropertyAccessor

object with the DASL property tag

"http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/0x007D001E" (a DASL tag, not an

URL) to get the entire header property (PR_TRANSPORT_MESSAGE_HEADERS) as a

string, but you'd need to parse each line of that string to extract

individual headers.

In earlier versions of Outlook where PropertyAccessor isn't available you'd

have to use a different API such as Extended MAPI (C++ or Delphi, unmanaged

code only) or CDO 1.21 (optional installation and subject to security) or

Redemption (www.dimastr.com/redemption) to get the Internet headers.
