urn:schemas:mailheader: Namespace

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

The urn:schemas:mailheader: namespace defines fields that contain Internet standard message header values. Each field value (with a few exceptions) is stored as US-ASCII characters and is identical to the ASCII string found in the message stream. Non-US-ASCII characters are encoded according to the RFC 1522 specification. No conversion is performed when the property value is set or updated. An application that sets a raw message header property within this namespace must encode any non-US-ASCII characters as defined in RFC 1522. If these characters are not encoded, the header field value is corrupted.

String constants are provided in the C++ header file cdosysstr.h and type library, cdoMailHeader module, for each field name. You can use these constants when referring to the fields to avoid mistakes and extra typing.

Example

The following example demonstrates the use of the fields in the urn:schemas:mailheader: namespace. First, RFC 822 headers are added for a message. Next, body parts are added and the Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) headers are set manually.

This code is for illustrative purposes only.

Visual Basic

Dim iMsg as New CDO.Message
Dim Flds as ADODB.Fields
With iMsg
  .To   = """SomeOne"" <someone@example.com>"
  .From = """Me"" <me@example.com>"

' Now set some custom mail headers using the raw fields collection
   Set Flds = .Fields
   With Flds
    .Item("urn:schemas:mailheader:X-Mailer")  = "Microsoft CDO for Microsoft Exchange"
      ' I add a custom header here
    .Item("urn:schemas:mailheader:Myheader")= "some value"
    .Update
   End With
End With ' iMsg

   Dim iBp as CDO.IBodyPart
   Dim iBp2 as CDO.IBodyPart

   Set iBp = iMsg   '  get IBodyPart on Message object

   Set Flds = iBp.Fields

   Flds.Update

   Set iBp2 = iBp.AddBodyPart
