I'm using theWin32 API.   When I enable drag and drop for a control on dialogbox, i can drop most file types and use DragQueryFile to get the file name.  Messages from outlook cannot be droped onto the same control.  I can drop an outlook message to my desktop, and then from my desktop to the control.  Is there a way to enable my control to allow a direct drop?  Some file association I can make?  Any ideas?
