We are building an intranet asp.net application where all users have Outlook

2003 or greater. Can someone point me to ways to read from an inbox from the

browser (ActiveX or something better)? Thanks.

You might want to start by looking at the Outlook View Control; see

http://www.outlookcode.com/article.aspx?id=70. Beyond that, you'll need to

provide specifics on what your application intends to do, whether Microsoft

Exchange is involved, etc.

We have both situations. Most of the time Exchange is involved but sometimes

users go directly to the ISP mail server via pop3.

I would like to be able to copy the from email name or address and also the

body of the email and paste it into a database column in SQL. We had done

that in the past from an Access front-end but are now moving to asp.net web

intranet. I have no trouble emailing out via asp.net but need a way to read

incoming emails, either the selected email or the one a user currently has

open. All users currently use IE but not sure if that will always be the

case. Let me know if you need more. Thank you.

This is more of a kludge suggestion/idea than a solution.

Could you create an Outlook rule? Something similar to Feedbacker's

response at this site.

http://www.astahost.com/info.php/ms-outlook-rules_t9458.html

And use Open/Write/Close/Dir statements to write a text file of your

values to a file that can be sucked in by your SQL server?

MS provides a link for scripts at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306108

with a link at the bottom the Ms Mosher's site as well for further

expansion.

If you can't depend on IE or Exchange, things get very complicated quickly.

Basically, the bulk of the code probably would have to be client-side

JScript accessing the Outlook session running on the user's machine, and you

would need to use either an Outlook add-in or a third-party component like

Outlook Redemption to avoid the security prompts that protect email

addresses stored in Outlook.

We are currently using Redemption in our client applications but I wasn't

aware that it could be used in a client browser-based solution.
