I have a scenario like, from my database how many favorite clients are there, that many folders I have to create in Outlook under Inbox/Archive folders.


And based on the selection of particular client folder, need to display some information of corresponding client.




For e.g. I have 101, 102, 103 has my favorite clients. I had made these clients as my favorite from other application.




When I opened my outlook, it has to show that three projects as folders under Inbox/Archive folder tree. When I select the 101 client it has to display some information of the same client in white space of outlook.




Later if I made 103 as my non-favorite, it has to reflect the same in outlook. i.e. it has to delete that folder from outlook.




In the last I want to synch this folder structure according to the database.




How we can achieve same thing using VSTO. If any clue on this, please help me out.




[I am able to create simple folders using VSTO and able to display information of a client statically. i.e. Not able to synch with the Database, according to the above example]




Thanks in advance. :)

There's nothing simple about writing synch software for Outlook. What

exactly do you want to synch? Do you want to synch items in those folders or

what?

Also, please post your Outlook version. We really know nothing about the

database, your Outlook version, what language, whether you are familiar with

using VSTO or not or just about anything else.

Thanks , for your response to my question. Please find below further details of my question.


I think this gives you the clear picture of my mission.


I am posting this details as two parts due to restrictions of query length.


Part - I


I have idea on VSTO applications. My outlook version is 2007 and 2003. (Need Add-ins for both versions).


I am a Dynamics Ax Technical Consultant and working on integration projects, using Visual Studio (C#).


In Dynamics Ax we have Enterprise Portal (EP), I want to display some of the web parts which are deployed on the page (*.aspx) pertaining to the client details, based on the selection of client (101,102 & 103) folder.


The favorite client option will be checked/Unchecked from Ax application. Based on the check/Uncheck option, it should reflect the folder structure (this is I mentioned as synch with the database).

In simple the tree structure looks like as follows…


InBox/Archive Folder


|


My Favorite Client


|


101


102


103


I had done same thing, by placing some option on the Outlook Toolbar/Menu.


Can we achieve the same without user’s explicit actions (selecting Menu/Toolbar options)?
I want to go like when the users open/close the outlook. How to track these close/open events of outlook.



In simple I made 101, 102 & 103 as my favorite clients and when I opened the outlook, it has to show three folders under My Favorite Client folder. Now I had made 103 is my non-favorite, again I will close and open the outlook. Now it has to show only 101 and 102 under My Favorite Client folder.
