Missing MailMessage.From.Address in local email messages

We are using Aspose.Email.dll ver. 22.8 to parse email metadata as follows:

var options = options = new MsgLoadOptions();
var message = MailMessage.Load("test.msg", options);
var fromAddress = message.From.Address;

In Aspose.Email.dll ver. 20.4, which we were using before upgrading to 22.8, the Address property was filled. Now, it is empty for the same (locally sent with Exchange) email.

I am attaching the .msg file to test this.

Please let us know when this issue will be fixed.

We apologize for your inconvenience.


It is to inform you that the issue you are facing is not a bug in Aspose.Email. It is expected behavior. The original message contains an address in Exchange format that does not make sense in a MailMessage (EML format). We cannot change the behavior because other users will have problems, but you can use following code example to achieve your requirement.

var msg = MapiMessage.Load("test.msg");
var options = new MailConversionOptions();
if (msg.SenderAddressType == "EX")
    options.KeepOriginalEmailAddresses = true;
var eml = msg.ToMailMessage(options);
var fromAddress = eml.From.Address;
