  • Outlook Express Email Plugin- Re-Release!

    As if i need MORE on my plate right? lol

    i'm considering making a MAPI compatible email extension plugin. The plugin will be simple in its purpose initially with the abilities to read and write email, display the number of new messages. It will work right from outlook express. So any email address you have set up within outlook express will be available for use. It will also pull contact data from OE. Maybe at some point it will add features like attachments, contact management in the like but in the meantime i'd simply like to be able to read and write email inside rr. Anyone interested?

    PROGRESS:

    Check Email and Receive New Messages= 100%
    Send Messages= 100%
    Reply to Messages= 100%
    Forwarding Messages = 100%
    Deleting Messages From Outlook = 100%
    Saving Messages to Drive = 100%
    New Message Indicator = 100%
    Message Count Label = 100%
    OSK Entrys = 100%
    Contact Retrieval = 100%
    Add Contact = 100%

        i'm in for this

        saves embedding the OE into a skin , much more intergrated, and makes it look more complete. good idea and work sonicx

            well i've got the read feature goin quite well. Only thing i cant figure out is how to find out how many new messages there are versus total messages without refetching the mail from the server. Anyone familiar with the MAPI components wanna chime in on that? Other than that i can now pull email from the server, format it, scroll it, forward it and reply to it. Not bad considering i just thought about doin it this morning lol. Another screenie.. this time in a flash skin.

                    lol i dont think i've made a path yet. I do have some hardcoded skin names (email.skin, compose_email.skin, & confirm_email.skin) so far. Is that ok with you blue

                      Very Nice! This was actually a project on my list of things to do. I had come across an AutoIt script that can check a POP account and send mail and attachments as well. Ran into the same problem of trying to keep track of new messages -vs- messages that had already been read.

                      Great work, can't wait to test it out! You know I am always willing to beta test

                        a beta shall soon be available. Right now i'm going thru and checking the dependicies for MAPI. Some stuff to make this plugin usable with outlook express seems to only be installed by outlook so i'm gathering the .dlls needed and will include them in the plugin.

                          ok looks like the only dependency not bundled with xp is msmapi32.ocx which i'll include in the plugin's folder. It will need to be registered. Now other OS's and "lite" xp installs may need more than just the .ocx. Last lil bit i need before releasing a beta is a name lol. Right now i just named it "Email Plugin" but chances are there can and will be other plugins in the future related to email. So how about it guys!
