Get message entryID from an Even Sink?

Post by Jay » Sat, 20 Dec 2003 05:19:02

I'm trying to retrieve the message entryID from an OnSave public folder
event sink and I'm not having any luck. This is just a simple event to
notify someone that a new appointment was placed in a public folder and
provide a link to this new item. The reason for the entryID is that they
want to open the item in outlook, not in OWA. And some documentation I
found says an outlook: url followed by the entryID will do the trick.

I can't use the meeting subject as this folder was set up a long time ago
and meetings are titled with the creators name and one person might create
10 appointments in a short period of time.

I'm using vbscript and have tried with CDO and ADO. According to what I'm
seeing for CDO objMessage.ID should return the value I'm after but it never
returns anything.

Any help would be apprecaited!

Try to search the Microsoft Knowledge base for CDOEX and look for an article
how to retrieve the CDO 1.21 entry ID from a CDOEX message. I don't have the
MSKB ID handy but that article has the info you are looking for.
