I am not sure but i think you should duplicate the email and then resend it....do you have a clue(breakpoint/watch) when the message gets deleted ?


I was also just changing the resend. To forward?
I believe that is the standard Outlook behavior. It does seem to make sense. Usually you would resend a message if the recipient didn't receive it. And then from a tracking point of view, the message is replaced with a new sent message.

One approach would be to forward the email. You might want to check if automatic forwarding modifies the title and/or adds indentation. That might not be desirable in your case.
