Outlook 2003 - Issue resolving recipient

3 posts in this topic

Hi Outlook gurus out there!

I use the following code snippet to resolve an Outlook recipient. If returns FALSE if there is more then one entry in the addressbook. Unfortunately Outlook 2003 doesn't provide the "GetSelectNamesDialog" method so that lets me offer the dialog to the user and let him decide which entry to process.

Does anyone know a way to do this with Outlook 2003?

$oRecip = $oDummy.Recipients.Add($sRecipient) 
$oRecip.Resolve 
If $oRecip.Resolved Then
 ; Recipient was resolved 
Else 
 ; Could not resolve Recipient. Display selection dialog to the user 
Endif

To my knowledge, the exchange 2003 object model doesn't support that directly... Some ideas:

-Using CDO, which allows for a dialog: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms526712(v=EXCHG.10).aspx

-Matching the recipients to a single entry via .CreateRecipient() with a "=" specified, like so: http://www.outlookbanter.com/322571-post4.html

-Writing the .Resolve matching logic yourself, by getting a list of people from their address list and contacts, and then enumerating over each one to find their name, match that against your 'search' and build your own resolve GUI for conflicts.

Hi evilertoaster,
