Drag-N-Drop from MS Outlook

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm trying to do drag-n-drop from MS Outlook onto a C#
form. I'm just proving a concept for management here so
we don't need to get fancy; assume I'm dropping an Outlook
e-mail message with 2 file attachements onto a form. I've
read everything I could find in MSDN that is relevant and
I've got the basic hooks in place:

private void MainForm_DragEnter(object sender,
System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)
{
e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy;
}

private void MainForm_DragDrop(object sender,
System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs e)
{
?????? PLEASE HELP
}

But now what? About all that I have been succesfully able
to do is get the string text of the message. How do I get
to the subject? body? distribution? file attachements? Is
everything I need in the dropped object itself? Or do I
need to interact with the clipboard or Outlook itself?

Any help would be appreciated, a dirty C# code snippet
would be best, but if you could just steer me in the right
direction I'd appreciate it. I've read everything in MSDN
that I could find that was relevant to drag/drop and
Outlook but have not found a sample that works with the
entire e-mail message AND file attachements.
