hi,

Is it possible to create an outlook .msg file programmatically using asp.net c#?

we tried to create this .msg file in our .net application and force download the .msg file using the below code

Response.Clear();
Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-outlook";
Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=myfile.msg");
Response.BinaryWrite(myMemoryStream.ToArray());
Response.Flush();
Response.Close();
Response.End();

But it was not working fine, any suggestions?

Hi,

Thank you for looking into this query.

The above question is related to contenttype. When downloading msg file, instead of directly opening outlook, our application prompted error as "The command line argument is not valid, verify the switch you are using...".

Can you please help here to know how to create binary formatted unicode msg file through our .net application or do i need to change contenttype?

Hi, do you mean to say, there are no options in in-built .net components and we need to buy third party components for this functionality?

many things are not built in .Net! Do you prefer to use the built-in grid or to rely on a 3rd party grid? the framework itself can't do everything and some stuff are done better by complements.
