Access Reading and writing emails

P: n/a
Hi Guys

I arrived at the holy grail of Access 2000 programming about a year
ago, when I found out how to READ AND WRITE to and from the Microsoft
Outlook Inbox <smug>

Now the pesky endusers are saying they want to be able to use the
program when the default email client is something other than Microsoft
Outlook. Like Outlook Express or Eudora.

Mercifully, This is just on unconnected stand alone machines, but I am
stumped as to where to go from here.

It has been suggested that CDO would answer my requirements.

Any Advice appreciated.

Bob

The Access IISAM you use to link tables connects to any
MAPI interface. (MAPI = Mail API from Microsoft)

If any Windows Mail Client is installed which registers
a MAPI interface, you can link to it.

I know there's code here that does that. Look for "Outlook" etc in
this NG. I remember it from a while back (several years ago)...

You can also have a look at Tony Toews' site (where's he gone? Another
casualty of the excessive BS that's been cloggin this ng?)
