Hello,
I'm trying to get emails though the EWS interface from a Exchange 2007 server. This is working just fine.
But one job is to get the Body text from a email and place that text in another Database. This is also fine, but my problem is that if I (Person A) send a email to person B, and that person B is "replying" to Person A message and include the original message .
Then when I retrieve the message from the Exchange, I get the full message, that’s  of cause normal.
But I want to filter the initiate message from Person A away from the EmailMessage.Body object.  
So that I only get the response from person B.
Is that possible?

Thansk in advance
Torben

You might try getting the item's InReplyTo property.  I've not tried it myself, but I think this will give you the ItemId of the original message, and you can get the body of that.

Or, you will will just have to do it manually, by lookinf for some text that you are sure will always appear at the beginning of the original message in the reply, such as "----- Original Message -----".  If you find this text, then you could discard everything that follows it.

Hi,
Thanks for your answer.
I was hoping for at tag inside the email, but then I can place one there myself, as you proposed.
Again thanks for the help.

It is not possible to get the Original message.. You have to supply it with at tag yourself
