Detecting MessageFormat?

Is there any way to determine the format of an email message beyond checking it’s file extension? Calling MailMessage.Load doesn’t seem to work properly unless you specify the format as well.


Currently, if Load() method is called without specifying format, it expects to load an eml file. So, MessageFormat needs to be provided according to the type of message (eml or msg).

We will do some analysis about auto detecting the file format and consider adding it in future. We will notify you if we make a plan to implement this.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 15401) have been fixed in this update.

With the release of Aspose.Email for .NET v1.3.0, MailMessage.Load() method can auto detect the format of supplied email message without specifying MessageFormat.
