Reply Method (Message Object)

Exchange Server 2003

Topic Last Modified: 2004-06-09

The Reply method returns a new Message object that can be used to reply to the sender of the current message.

Set objReplyMessage = objMessage.Reply( )


On successful return, contains the new Message object ready for replying.


Required. This Message object.

The Reply method copies the current message to the new message and populates its Recipients collection with a single "To" recipient set from the original message's Sender property. In keeping with response conventions, Reply does not copy any Attachment objects to the new message.

Reply does not save any changes or send any e-mail. You must call Update on the new Message object to save it in the messaging system, or Send to initiate transmission to the recipients.

The current implementation of the Reply method does not copy the Text property to the new message.
