Outlook XP sometimes fails to save attachments using the Outlook object model
Posted on 2004-03-22
We're using XML attachments to represent extra data in a custom application (it's a little too irregular, and too large, to use fields for the job). On occasion, Outlook appears to be unable to save the attachment, but fails silently instead of returning an error. It appears to be more common under heavy load - for example, try processing 200 such items in a loop using Outlook's objetct model.
Has anyone else ever seen this behaviour? Any suggestions?
