When you save a message using the Microsoft Visual Basic for Windows MAPISaveMail function, the Originator parameter of the message is set to the Mail user who logged on.


The Microsoft Visual Basic MAPIMessage structure does not contain an Originator field like the C equivalent message structure does. Therefore, the actual originator cannot be saved--instead, the logon user information is saved in this field (when it is read by MAPIReadMail). The C MAPISaveMail function correctly preserves the originator field because it is in the C MAPIMessage structure.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in versions 3.0 and 3.0b of Microsoft Mail for Windows. This problem was corrected in version 3.2 of Microsoft Mail for Windows.
