Hi Team,

I am trying to run the given below code and I am not able to proceed further as it is giving me some error.  It had run for a couple of times, but stoped working all of a sudden.

Given below is the code.

Private Sub cmdViewEmail_Click()
    Dim olFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
    Dim olConversationIndex As String
   
    olConversationIndex = [Form_qryEmails&Comments subform].Conservation_Index
    Set olFolder = GetOlFolder("\\Mailbox - Operations Collections\Inbox")
   
    Set Test = olFolder.Session.GetItemFromID("0101CD0EB640F8EC9BCA09902E4383A0DE3146196E1A9683932700800178B580")
    Test.Display
   
End Sub


Given below is the error I get when I try to run the above code.

Error Screen shot.
I also did some further testing and it seems to work for certain emails and does work for certain emails.  Please note the folder has only emails, no calander or task etc..

Thanks,
Sandesh.

Also, I don't see a declaration for Test.  Is it supposed to be a MailItem?

And in this line:  olConversationIndex = [Form_qryEmails&Comments subform].Conservation_Index

you have "Conservation_Index" and "olConversationIndex".  Shouldn't they both be Conversation?

Hi Team,

Each and every mail item that I have captured in my database exits and In case of the given coding, sorry for the confusion.  I had included only a part of the code and did not remove all the not related lines.  Here is the code again.

Private Sub cmdViewEmail_Click()
    Dim olFolder As Outlook.MAPIFolder
   
    Set olFolder = GetOlFolder("\\Mailbox - Operations Collections\Inbox")
   
    Set Test = olFolder.Session.GetItemFromID("0101CD0EB640F8EC9BCA09902E4383A0DE3146196E1A9683932700800178B580")
    Test.Display
   
End Sub

GetOlFolder() here is a small function which converts the given Outlook folder path into a proper MAPI Folder path.

I did try to declare Test as a MailItem, but was getting same error.  Please note I problem here is that this code is working for a few emails and does not work for a few emails.

Thanks,
Sandesh.

Hi Team,

After doing some additinal testing I found that the first time I use this code.  It works for all emails.  But later it starts to work only on emails sent from my domain.

I think we jsut need to clear some memory somewere.  All I need to know is what is it that I need to clear.

Thanks,
Sandesh.
