A couple of days ago, we published an update to the Outlook 2010 MAPI reference. Rather than try to summarize everything we did, here’s the mini press release Randy sent out to announce that we were done:
The updated 11/15/2010 release of the Outlook 2010 MAPI Reference is now live on MSDN. Additionally, I’m happy to announce that the Outlook 2010 Auxiliary Reference is available on MSDN. This publication completes our developer documentation for Outlook 2010. Outlook 2010 developer documentation consists of the following reference titles: Outlook 2010 MAPI Reference Outlook 2010 Auxiliary Reference Outlook 2010 Developer Reference Outlook 2010 Primary Interop Assembly Reference Outlook Social Connector 1.1 Provider Reference
My involvement in this project was as tech reviewer and author of MFCMAPI. I tried to shove as much of the new documentation into MFCMAPI as possible, including SmartView parsers for PidLidPropertyDefinitionStream and PidTagUserFields, both of which have been long standing requests. I also wrote or contributed to many of the code samples. The bulk of the work though was done by a small crew of folks on the Office Content Publishing team who know so much more about content than I could ever hope to know. They did an excellent job.
As always, feedback is welcome.
Hi, is there a change to see Outlook MAPI Service Provider Samples, implemented using .NET Framework (managed) code;
No, and there won't be. We don't support writing MAPI providers using .Net.
