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

No - MFCMAPI is just reporting the property as it found it. In fact, so is MAPI - that's how the client set the property. You've given two different scenarios with different clients - they're allowed to behave differently. I've updated the title bar code to prefer the long filename properties - I just haven't published a new build yet.
