Hi,

it's by design dear, you can not have http context available for item event receivers.

read this post to understand it fully

it's a series, so that you will know inside out how event handler works in SharePoint.

Regards,
Vikas Patel.

Use static collection along with logged in user which you can get from SPContext object and remove it timely by using some logic

hope this will give you some insight, it's not compete but workaround. ;)

if you have farm environment with more then one WFE's then this will not work at that time you need to use persistence storage to go ahead.
