SUMMARY

Changes to the CDO (1.1, 1.2, 1.21) MessageFilter properties appear to have no effect.

MORE INFORMATION

The following code sample shows how to activate, then deactivate a CDO (1.1, 1.2, 1.21) MessageFilter via Visual C++.

The key to successfully shutting or altering the MessageFilter is to be sure to destroy any reference that is made to any object related to the MessageFilter (also known as Folder:MessagesCollection:MessageFilter).

Code Sample:

   /**********************************************************/ 
   // MSGFILTER.CPP
   // -------------
   // This program demonstrates how the CDO (1.1, 1.2, 1.21)
   // MessageFilter works via VC++. This sample requires VC++
   // version 5.0 or higher.
   /**********************************************************/ 

   // TO DO: If you are using CDO (1.1) unremark the next line:
   // #import <olemsg32.dll> no_namespace

   // TO DO: If you are using CDO (1.2, 1.21) unremark the next line:
   // #import <cdo.dll> no_namespace

   #import <olemsg32.dll> no_namespace

   #include <assert.h>
   #include <stdio.h>
   #include <tchar.h>

   void dump_com_error(_com_error &e)
   {
       _tprintf(_T("Oops - hit an error!\n"));
       _tprintf(_T("\a\tCode = %08lx\n"), e.Error());
       _tprintf(_T("\a\tCode meaning = %s\n"), e.ErrorMessage());
       _bstr_t bstrSource(e.Source());
       _bstr_t bstrDescription(e.Description());
       _tprintf(_T("\a\tSource = %s\n"), (LPCTSTR) bstrSource);
       _tprintf(_T("\a\tDescription = %s\n"), (LPCTSTR) bstrDescription);
    }

   // If this is placed in the scope of the smart pointers, they must be
   // explicitly Release(d) before CoUninitialize() is called.  If any
   // reference count is non-zero, a protection fault will occur.
   struct StartOle {
      StartOle() { CoInitialize(NULL); }
      ~StartOle() { CoUninitialize(); }
   } _inst_StartOle;
