Hi all,

Is it possible to capture the address book search event? If so can we chain

a custom search should the the query not return any results?

Thanks,

Tom

Address book search event when? When you type a name and it gets resolved as

a recipient? There's no event exposed for that I've ever seen.

Hi Ken,

I had a customer that wanted to catch the user email address search event

and perform a custom query if the outlook search did not return any results.

I did not think that it was possible without hacking into low level windows

api's.

Thanks,

Tom

So essentially yo uwant to return your own address when a name gets

resolved, right?

Address Book provider is the only solution (this is as low level MAPI as it

gets).
