[REBOL] Re: MAPI programming?

From: doublec::acc::co::nz at: 4-Sep-2001 9:43

I've always found MAPI programming to be one of the more confusing aspects of Windows programming. That probably explains why just about everyone uses a pre-built control to do the work. There are three MAPI apis you can use: 1) Simple MAPI 2) Common Messaging calls (CMC) 3) CDO The first two have C interfaces rather than COM so they'd probably be a better choice. You're more likely to find documentation and examples on 'Simple MAPI' so that might be a better option. The MSDN has some examples on how to use it. According to the MSDN, you need to load the libraries and get the procedure addresses for the functions: hlibMAPI = LoadLibrary("MAPI32.DLL"); // 32 bit clients ... lpfnMAPILogon = (LPFNMAPILOGON) GetProcAddress (hlibMAPI, "MAPILogon"))) It goes on with examples for sending/receiving messages, etc. What is the task you are trying to do?
