Microsoft® Visual Basic® programmers can create new Message objects using the Messages collection’s Add method.

C/C++ programmers can create new Message objects with the OLE function CoCreateInstance.

A message can be obtained from its parent Messages collection using the collection’s Item property. To get to the Messages collection in a folder, use the Folder object’s Messages property. If you know a message’s unique identifier, you can obtain it directly from the Session object’s GetMessage method.

A Message object can be rendered into HTML hypertext using the CDO Rendering ObjectRenderer object. To specify this, set the object renderer's DataSource property to the Message object itself. The individual properties that can be rendered with the RenderProperty method are indicated in the Message object property descriptions.

A Message object can also be rendered as the parent of a Recipients collection, using the ContainerRenderer object. The individual properties that can be rendered with the RenderProperty method are indicated in the Message object property descriptions.
