OpenSharedItem holds onto FileHandle

Good Day,

Im working on a C# Addin application using the OL 2007 Interops.

What Im seeing is that using Msg Files with Digital Signatures attached (Encrypted messages included) that I am unable to release the File handle for that message and as a result unable to delete it or use it later.

This will however work for other files that do not have a Digital Signature or that are not encrypted. AKA the file handle will not be held.

It appears that OpenSharedItem call is behaving differently for msgs that contain digital signatures.

// Code Sample

outlookItem = OutlookApplication.Session.OpenSharedItem("c:\testMsg.msg");


outlookItem = null;

Thanks in Advance for any help!
