I am working on an application, which sends out emails through Exchange server, and track and process the replies. In order to link the reply with the original outbound email, we need to know the "message-id" field of the emails sent out.

The email sending and receiving are done with WebDAV calls. Does someone know the answer?

the field you are wanting to capture is the 'Message-ID:' field

it will look like this in the smtp headers

Message-ID: <DD3A01CC964AA34B80CCB895A38B0241DC4F02@mx.domain.com>

How to obtain the SMTP headers? Our applications access Exchange server through OWA and WebDAV.

I found this - perhaps it will help you

Re: Find CDO Message.ID with WebDAV
http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/Development/microsoft.public.win32.programmer.messaging/2004-07/0151.html

Now I found the problem myself, here is the solution:

String query = "<?xml version=\"1.0\"?>"
+ "<g:searchrequest xmlns:g=\"DAV:\">"
+ "<g:sql>SELECT
\"http://schemas.microsoft.com/mapi/proptag/0x0FFF0102\"
AS entryId "
+ "FROM Scope('SHALLOW TRAVERSAL OF \"" + folderUri
+ "\"') "
+ "WHERE \"DAV:contentclass\" = 'urn:content-
classes:task' "
//+ additional wheres
//send the query, parse results ...

byte[] bytes = Convert.FromBase64String( entryId );
String taskID = String.Empty;
String currentNumber;
foreach(byte b in bytes){
        currentNumber = b.ToString("X");
        if(currentNumber.Length == 1){
                currentNumber = "0"+currentNumber;
        }
        taskID += currentNumber;
}

session.Logon(defaultProfileName, "", false, false,
Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value);
MAPI.Folder taskFolder = (MAPI.Folder)
session.GetDefaultFolder(8);

MAPI.Message message = (MAPI.Message)session.GetMessage
(taskIDs[1], infoStoreID);
Console.WriteLine(message.Subject.ToString());

session.Logon(defaultProfileName, "", false, false,
Missing.Value, Missing.Value, Missing.Value);
MAPI.Folder taskFolder = (MAPI.Folder)
session.GetDefaultFolder(8);

MAPI.Message message = (MAPI.Message)session.GetMessage
(taskIDs[1], infoStoreID);
Console.WriteLine(message.Subject.ToString());
