Microsoft Active Accessibility does not report the full message header as shown
in the message list box. For instance, if a message item in the list box has
subject "Test", sender "Pete", and date "10/1/04", MSAA might only report
"10/1/04" as the value of that item. The value reported is determined by which
column in the list box is currently selected for sorting. The value of all three
header fields (subject, sender, date) should be reported as the MSAA value or
perhaps as the MSAA description (as Microsoft Outlook Express does).

Currently, it is difficult, if not impossible, for assistive technology products
to automatically report the message headers in the list box without implementing
a workaround.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
