I am developing an application where I want to notify about file being sent in Microsoft Exchange. So, I have implemented notifications on the message store and trying to retrieve the file name. The problem is filename of only eight characters can be retrieved when a file is sent as an attachment using OWA. I am attaching 2 snapshots of the attachment table of two emails. I have sent a file as attachment using OWA (results shown in first snapshot) and using Microsoft Outlook (results shown in the second snapshot). Also the properties of attachment are less when a file is sent as an attachment in email using OWA. I have asking this question here also: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/e8db2020-59f9-46bf-954b-9f7fcd6b5896

Also in different scenarios, like when an email is sent using Microsoft Outlook or OWA from a computer which is part of WORKGROUP, then attachment name is sometimes shown as long name and sometimes as short name (inconsistency). When it is shown in short name, the name is in CAPS. I don't remember the scenarios. This is daily work that I am doing to develop an application. The problem was that the attachment name was not coming right. Could you resolve this issue in next update of MFCMAPI or Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects dlls?
