Hi, We are trying to create and save a OutlookMsg as below.

Approach 1:

MailMessage message = new MailMessage();
message.MessageId = new Rebex.Mime.Headers.MessageId(Guid.NewGuid().ToString());
message.To.Add("static@test.com");
message.Subject = "Subject";
message.BodyHtml = "Hello RebEx";

MemoryStream mailStream = new MemoryStream();
message.Save(mailStream, MailFormat.OutlookMsg);

Approach 2 :

Create email as above and then create reply

MailMessage newMessage = message.CreateReply(new Rebex.Mime.Headers.MailAddress("static@test.com"), ReplyBodyTransformation.None, true);

MemoryStream mailStream = new MemoryStream();
newMessage.Save(mailStream, MailFormat.OutlookMsg);

I have tried 2 ways to create and saved message.

But when I open that saved message, I do not get Send button, it shows Reply.. buttons.

My requirement is to create email using code with some existing template and then allow user to edit and send using Outlook.

Best answer

To achieve your requirement please add the "X-Unsent: 1" header to the mail. It can be done like this:

// create message ...

// add "X-Unsent: 1" header 
message.Headers.Add("X-Unsent", "1");

// save message ...
