- Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
If you use the Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 object model to retrieve font and style information from an Outlook 2007 e-mail message, you cannot retrieve the following character formatting information:
- Font name
- Font size
- Font style
- Range orientation
This problem occurs because Outlook 2007 e-mail messages are locked to prevent changes unless you edit the messages. Therefore, the Outlook 2007 object model cannot access the font and style information from the e-mail message.
To work around this problem, you must edit the e-mail message. When you go into edit mode for an e-mail message that has been read, the Outlook 2007 object model can access the font and style information from the message.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
If you use the WordEditor.Unprotect command in the Outlook 2007 object model to unprotect the e-mail message, you will be unable to protect the e-mail message. Additionally, you cannot use the WordEditor.Unprotect command on an e-mail message that is formatted in plain text.
