How can I save a TElMessage object to file keeping its original data including digital signatures ?

The problem is that the signature is not valid any more when opening the exported .eml file in Outlook:


TElMessage message2;
int options =SBMIME.__Global.mpoLoadData|SBMIME.__Global.mpoStoreStream;
client.ReceiveMessage(messageId.Index, "", "",options,
                        true, false, false, out message2);
String filename = @"C:\temp\" + message2.MessageID + ".eml";
Stream stream = new FileStream(filename, FileMode.Create);

I know there is another ReceiveMessage overload with a byte[] parameter. But I want to use TElMessage object as I don't want to load the an exported email from disk to create a TElMessage object.

Basically, you can't.

Your code is re-assembling the message, i.e. creating a new message. Obviously you can't apply an existing digital signature to the new message.

The right approach is to keep a copy of the original message data somewhere and save it if needed.

But how can get the original message ? Do I have to use the ReceiveMessage overload with "Stream" ? And then I would have to read it again from disk to get a TElMessage object ?

I assume that you are talking about TElPOP3Client.

ReceiveMessage has three overloads -- the one that fires OnMessageLine event for each line of the message, the one that saves the data to stream (and you can use MemoryStream for this) and the one that you used.

Obviously you can use one of the alternatives to store the data somewhere and load the message from there.

Remember that when you read the data from the stream, you need to first reset stream position to 0.
