Great :)

Well, if you're going to make it a race... <wink>.  I've checked in some

I looked them up, and have done that.

I chose SUBMIT_TIME, as I gather that's the time it was submitted for
sending, which is probably the best choice, I think.  The formatting was
like what I had for X-Exchange-Delivery-Time (which I have reformatted into
a Received header).

I also did organisation - however, this is another one of those unnamed (and
seemingly undocumented) properties, so I'm not 100% that it's correct.  For
one, I can't set an "organisation" value for my exchange account, only
POP/IMAP accounts.  However, if I send myself mail, I get the organisation
value from another account tacked on to the message, so it seems that's what
it is.  Could you try this one out (if possible) and see what you get?

There are two, I think, eg I have:

0x7E8EFFE2          : '10.0'
0x7E8FFFFD          : 104712

The '10.0' is a pretty version, and the other one is what's in the "About"
dialog box (as 10.4712....).  These would be enough, and I added the code,
but for some reason Outlook chokes if I try to get either of these
properties (but no other ones that I can find).  I'm not sure why that is.
You can look into it if you like <0.5 wink>.
