Email addresses format

I found the EMailAddress property of a Recipient object holds the email
address in a GW internal format instead the classic @ format.

For example "renatoa@rdslink.ro" becomes "renatoa.ro.rdslink"

Is there any function/property to get back the email in canonical string
format?

Thank you,
Renato

Re: Email addresses format

Additional, how can I find the AddressBookEntry contact object corresponding
to the Recipient, if any?

Re: Email addresses format

To get internet style addressing enabled, you have
to have a GWIA configured in the system.

Its been awhile for the other problem.
If you have a Recipient object, you can get
the Address object from it and pass it in AddressBookEntries.Item().
That should work. That is, if the item is in the AddressBookEntries
collection. If not you could always find the entry using
AddressBook.Find() or AddressBookEntries.Find().

Not sure I understand...

I created programatically a contact, set the EmailAddress property of the
AddressBookEntry object to an Internet style email address.
In GW client I still see the email address of the new created contact in @
format, but , if I schedule an appt for this contact, the
recipient.EmailAddress property is in GW format.
I want to retrieve it somewhere in @ format, starting from the appointment,
is this possible?

If I use recipient's Address property, the email address of AddressBookEntry
object returned is also in GW format.
Where is the @ email address hidden, because GW client is still able to show
it ?

Thank you,
Renato

Re: Email addresses format

Sorry I don't understand what you are doing.
Can you give me a simple test program that shows
the problem?

Re: Email addresses format

I create a contact:

Dim ABE As GWApi.AddressBookEntry
....
ABE = ContactsAddressBook.AddressBookEntries.Add(DisplayName)
.... some statements to set contact fields, and later, I set the contact
email address using @ format
ABE.EMailAddress = drContact("email").ToString ' renatoa@rdslink.ro

in GW Windows client I check the contact has been succesfully created with
all fields values, I see the email address is in @ format, then schedule an
appointment for this contact...and, reading programatically the appt

For Each appt As GWApi.Appointment7 In myAppts ... ' myAppts contains only
one appt
For Each rcpt As GWApi.Recipient In appt.Recipients ...
here, rcpt.EMailAddress give me renatoa.ro.rdslink instead @ format

How can I fix this ?

Re: Email addresses format

It would appear as if your problem is
only getting the email address of the
recipients on an item.
I copied a test app to ftp://ftp.novell.com/outgoing/ListEntries.zip

I was not able to duplicate your problem.
If you are not running at least 7.0.3, you will need to update
to 7.0.3.

If you are running at least 7.0.3, you will need to give me
a test application that duplicates the problem since I can't
duplicate the problem.
