I am happy to announce that MVP Helmut Obertanner became the first MVP who contributed code samples to the Outlook 2007 Developer Reference on Office Online!
The two code samples that Helmut contributed are about the Account object, published in a new topic "How to: Send an E-mail Given the SMTP Address of an Account" and in the Account Object topic. These code samples are in managed code (C# and Visual Basic), which will directly benefit Outlook developers who have switched to using managed code over the last few years.
If you would like to see these code samples, they are available in the Office Online version of the Outlook 2007 Developer Reference. To view these code samples:
Typing other search keywords such as Helmut or MVP also returns these topics. Other than searching, developers can get to the new "How to: Send an E-mail Given the SMTP Address of an Account" topic via the following topics
The following reference topics also list this how-to topic in the See Also section:
I really appreciate Helmut's contribution, and anticipate to receive more code samples from him in the future. Go to Helmut's site at http://www.outlooksharp.de/ to find out more about his work!
BTW, at the moment, there is a small glitch on our publishing site that the URL of Helmut's site, http://www.outlooksharp.de/, is displayed not exactly as such but as the internal hyperlink we use to redirect viewers to Internet sites. Nonetheless, the hyperlink is clickable and brings viewers to Helmut's site, and our content engineering team is looking into fixing this glitch. Also, Helmut's code samples will be carried forward to the Developer Reference and Primary Interop Assembly Reference for Microsoft Outlook 2010.
