This content is outdated and is no longer being maintained. It is provided as a courtesy for individuals who are still using these technologies. This page may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.
Contains the display name of the author of the first version of a message, that is, the message before being forwarded or replied to.
PR_ORIGINAL_AUTHOR_NAME, PR_ORIGINAL_AUTHOR_NAME_A, PR_ORIGINAL_AUTHOR_NAME_W
These properties are examples of the address properties for the author of a message. At first submission of the message, the client application should set these properties to the value of PR_SENDER_NAME (PidTagSenderName). It is never changed when the message is forwarded or replied to.
The original author properties allow for preservation of information from outside the local messaging domain. When a message arrives from another messaging domain, such as from the Internet, these properties provide a way to ensure that original information is not lost.
