I have MAPI-based e-mail sending as part of my application.  I notice that when running on XP there is
new behaviour:  When I send the e-mail, XP pops a box
telling the user that an allpication is trying to send
e-mail, and the user can confirm or cancel.  I have two
problems with this:

  1) I don't really want this, as my GUI already handles
     such interactions with the user, and...
  2) In the box XP pops, it shows a (readonly) field for
     who the mail is going to -- but -- it's blank!  
     Despite this, the mail is addressed properly and
     gets sent properly, but XP must be looking elsewhere
     when it tries to show who the mail is headed for.

Thanks.

OK, I see its new "security" stuff that pops this message,
but why is the "To: " field blank?  I have a feeling there is some other MAPI call or variable I should be setting so the securoty patch will at least report to whom the e-mail is headed.  Or is this some sort of security thing to intentially NOT show it.... seems weird.

If the "To:" field is blank you are likely NOT calling the MAPI properly to set it.  Perhaps it just worked on older versions of the library by accident.

Show your code if you more more detailed assistance as I can't just imagine what you are doing and see a solution in my head.
