envelopeReader or version is Nothing.

Message takes ownership of envelopeReader.

This method reads the envelope, buffers all the headers into the header collection, and reads up to but not including the Body start tag, and returns the message. If the method call throws an exception, it closes the reader.

The body of the returned message can then be either read or written.

The message body can be read using the GetBody methods on the returned message. The returned object encapsulates all the child elements within the Body element. The message body can be written using WriteBody or WriteMessage. Once written, it cannot be read.

Closing the message closes the underlying envelope reader.
