Hi Dmitry,

Can you please explain in detail how to touch MailItem.GetInspector property?

Regards,

Gunjan

The signature is also inserted if you touch the MailItem.GetInspector

property for the brand new messages with unmodified body. You do not need to

actually display the message. This is probably the easiest way to insert the

signature if you do not want to display the item first.

It does, if (a) the user has an automatic signature set up and (b) you call

MailItem.Display first.

Email signature using Outlook COM object model

Can someone confirm that the Outlook 2003 COM object model does not

provide a way to programmatically get, modify, or remove the signature

line of an email?

Furthermore, it doesn't look like Redemption RDO supports manipulating

the signature line either (http://www.google.com/search?q=signature

%2F&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-

US:eek:fficial&client=firefox-a).

I've noticed that a SafeMailItem will contain the signature line as

long as I don't modify the Body property. Has anyone else noticed

that?

Thanks,

Jeff

Thanks for the link.

I did not see the text of the signature in the value of the Body

property of Redemption's SafeMailItem, as one might expect. Based on

that test, also I assume that the signature would not appear in

RDO.RDOMail.Body, .HTMLBody, .RTFBody either, but I didn't take the

time to test those. I didn't see a ".Signature" property or equivalent

in Outlook COM, Redemption Safe* items, or Redemption RDO objects. Am

I missing something?

In my install of Outlook 2003 (Word as Editor, HTML format by

default) the signature line is getting added as long as I don't

manipulate the SafeMailItem.Body property. Is that expected?

Thanks,

Jeff

You've provided some great ideas on how to work w/ the signature, and

I appreciate them. I'm just trying to focus in on what the Outlook COM

object model alone provides.

For a new email, if setting MailItem.Body erases the signature line of

an email, then one would hope that getting MailItem.Body prior to

setting it would retrieve the signature line of an email.

It'd be nice to be able to do something like this:

pseudocode snippet:

//create a new mail item

MailItem m = folder.Item.Add(OlItemType.olMailItem);

//store off the signature line (if the user has the option on):

String sig = m.Body;

//set Body to be my email content plus whatever the signature line is

m.Body = "my email content" + sig;

Contrary to how I'd like MailItem.Body to work, getting it prior to

setting it returns nothing (even if there is a signature line), and

setting it to something removes the signature line. I see no way to

set the Body of the email to my email content while at the same time

maintaining whatever signature line the user specified to appear in

new emails by default.

Thanks for your patience.
