Opening a message / Resfreshing Mailbox


I'm currently developing an interface between our c#-based application and groupwise 2014 client in order to send e-mails. Everything works fine so far: creating and populating the mail message works and even sending it would either, but it is required to display the message. Here's where I'm stuck since I can't find a way to refresh the mailbox and the message won't appear at the groupwise UI until F5 is pressed (objAccount.MailBox.Refresh(); won't do the trick). Another approach would be opening the newly created message in a new window, but I can't find a way doing that.

Thanks for any help in advance!

public static bool SendMail( ... ) {
GroupwareTypeLibrary.Application gwapplication;
GroupwareTypeLibrary.Account objAccount;
Messages messages;
Message message;
gwapplication = new GroupwareTypeLibrary.Application();
objAccount = gwapplication.Login("CLIENT USERNAME", null, "",
GroupwareTypeLibrary.LoginConstants.egwNeverPrompt, null);

messages = objAccount.MailBox.Messages;
message = messages.Add("GW.MESSAGE.MAIL", "A GENERAL SUBJECT TEXT", MessageBoxTypeConstants.egwDraft);

Recipients recipients = message.Recipients;
foreach (var eam in aFilteredTotalMailaddressList)
switch (eam.SendingAs)
case EmailAddressingType.To:
recipients.Add("MAIL ADDRESS", "SOME IDENTIFIER", AddressTargetTypeConstants.egwTo);
case EmailAddressingType.CC:
recipients.Add("MAIL ADDRESS", "SOME IDENTIFIER", AddressTargetTypeConstants.egwCC);
case EmailAddressingType.BCC:
recipients.Add("MAIL ADDRESS", "SOME IDENTIFIER", AddressTargetTypeConstants.egwBC);

message.Subject.PlainText = "SUBJECT TEXT";
message.BodyText.RTF = "RTF E-MAIL TEXT";
ErrorLogger.Info("Groupwise COM Interface", "Mail text added");

Attachments files = message.Attachments;
files.Add("ATTACHMENT OBJECT PATH", AttachmentTypeConstants.egwFile, "ATTACHMENT OBJECT NAME");

// NEEDED for sender-fields to be filled out! ("...then Add the Message object to the synnchronized collection via AddExisitingMessage() and the recipients are in the Mail Object" -
messages.AddExistingMessage(objAccount.Owner.DisplayName, objAccount.Owner.EMailAddress, "", DateTime.Now, MessageBoxTypeConstants.egwDraft, MessageStatusConstants.egwMessageStatusDefault, MessagePriorityConstants.egwNormal, MessageSecurityConstants.egwDefaultSecurity, message);

// Send e-mail...
// message.Send();

catch (Exception e)
// error message here
return false;
gwapplication = null;
objAccount = null;
messages = null;
message = null;
return true;

Re: Opening a message / Resfreshing Mailbox

You can look on the API called "GroupWise Tokens". It allows to control the Groupwise Client from your program. And it is definitely has Refresh() token
