Hi! Please point me to the correct discussion if I am off base.

We are beta testing a new Dot Net Framework application that allows us to
upload documents of different file types for online storage with each of our
transactions. We can easily drag and drop email attachments to the new
application, but we cannot seem to drag and drop an email msg from Outlook.

I suspect this may have something to do with security. We are able to export
and save the email msg as a text file, and upload that, or drag and drop text
directly from the email msg but this does not transfer any header info. The
direct method will be far simpler and more timesaving.

We know drag and drop is a possibility, as you are able to drag and drop an
email to the desktop for instance. I am correct? Is this issue actually a
security function to prevent malicious code troubles?

Best Regards,
Ellen
