Overview
WINDEV and WEBDEV allow you to easily access the data handled by Outlook. You have the ability to retrieve, modify, add or handle your contacts, appointments, tasks, emails, ...
Operating mode

Method for accessing Outlook

The Outlook access method is as follows:
  1. Starting a session for accessing the emails, tasks, appointments, contacts and/or groups of contacts: EmailStartOutlookSession or OutlookStartSession. You also have the ability to use EmailStartSession associated with an EmailOutlookSession variable.
  2. Stopping the session: CloseSession or EmailCloseSession.

Sending and receiving emails

To send and receive emails, Outlook must be started on the current computer.
To actually send and receive emails:
  • Sending and receiving emails automatically: Select the following options in the options of Outlook:
    • "Send the messages immediately during the connection".
    • "Check the new incoming messages every X minutes" and specify the requested number of minutes.
  • Sending and receiving emails manually: Click the "Send/Receive" button.

Version of Outlook

The access to Outlook is available for Outlook version 97 or later.
Note: The groups of contacts are not supported by Outlook 97. Therefore, they cannot be accessed in this version of Outlook.
Caution: Only the emails can be accessed in Outlook Express. In this case, use EmailStartSession to start the session for accessing emails.

MS Exchange server

  • The access to Outlook is compatible with the MS Exchange servers but it requires the presence of an Outlook client on the computer.
  • When using the Exchange or Outlook functions in a WEBDEV site, an Outlook client must be installed and configured on the server in the profile of the Internet guest.
Handling data
Once the session for accessing Outlook was started, you have the ability to handle:

Outlook Notes

The Outlook notes cannot be accessed in this version.

Limitations

  • The WLanguage functions can be used to write the information into the "Contacts" database of Outlook but not into the "Address Book" database. Depending on the creation mode of the email in Outlook, Outlook proposes:
    • the addresses of contacts (containing the addresses managed WINDEV).
    • the addresses of the address book.
  • When used in in a WEBDEV site, an Outlook client must be installed and configured on the server in the profile of the Internet guest.
  • To access Outlook in 64-bit mode, the WINDEV application must also be in 64-bit mode.
