Symptoms

You use a Microsoft Collaboration Data Objects (CDO)-based program on a computer that has Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 installed to read an EntryID property of a MAPI item. When you do this, the read fails on the first try. When you try to read the EntryID property again, Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2002 silently exits.

Cause

This problem occurs if the value of the EntryID property that is used by CDO equals or exceeds 255 bytes.
