    Is there a way to get to the messageid of the original message from a forwarded message using the REST API? Using the old VMWS api we were able to get to the orig message details from a forwarded message but not sure whether it's possible using the REST API?
     
    Thanks,

    Can't get the original message's objectId using REST but if you are looking for the details of the messages in the chain, that can be fetched.

    Do a GET /vmrest/message/<messageobjectid>?details=true
    on the message for which you want to get the details.
    It will give you the detailed output in which there will be attachment information. Look for the attachments having content-type "message/rfc822". Those are the messages which were forwarded in this chain. There are all the details for those messages but not the objectid.

    Correcting typo with the URL:
    Its /vmrest/messages/<messageobjectid>?details=true
