Google MAPI account

Hello,

I've developed a COM add-in that works with OL 2003/07 in C# .Net 2.0.

When OL starts I need to retrieve the list of OL accounts available in the

current OL Profile. For each account, I need to obtain the associated

SMTP-format email address.

The code I have works well for POP, EXCHANGE, HTTP (hotmail), and IMAP

accounts. However, I found a MAPI type that I cannot resolve. This account

was created in OL when the user installed the "Google Apps Sync" add-in for

Outlook available thru their Google Apps Premier account

(https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync). By the way, I say MAPI because

this is how Outlook displays it when the user opens the "Accounts Settings"

dialog (OL07) and the account is described as Type "MAPI".

The code I have scans the Profile details in the registry for the

CurrentUser hive. I'm adding some details here in case it helps (I can add

more if needed). First I get the Profile details from the corresponding entry

in this key:

Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging

Subsystem\Profiles

And then I get the related subkey/value

9375CFF0413111d3B88A00104B2A6676/{ED475418-B0D6-11D2-8C3B-00104B2A6676},

which gets me the final key where the details for the account are available

(typically "0000001" or something like that)

In this final account key I can access values like "Account Name", which

retrieves the correct information, but compared to POP/EX/IMAP I cannot find

a value that will get me the e-mail address. For example, for a POP or IMAP

account I can get the "Email" value (along with "POP3 User" or "IMAP User"

correspondingly and other like that); for an EX account I get "Identity Eid",

which gives me the Exchange id used later to retrieve the list of associated

SMTP e-mail addresses.

So, as I said, this works for all types of accounts except for this MAPI

account. Other than the "Account Name" value, none of the other values give

me something useful. Value names that I see in this type of account are "Mini

UID", "Service Name", and "Service UID", but I cannot make any sense of the

binary data stored in these values.

Any hints on how to obtain the associated SMTP-format e-mail address of this

MAPI account?

Thank you in advance

Have you tried to use regmon to see where the date is stored after you set

it in the UI?

Hi Dmitri,

Thank you for your comment.

I was afraid that I was going to get that type of answer. I was hoping

someone had already been thru this.

Someone else suggested I should attempt to query the plugin itself (GSync in

this case). I have never done something like that. Any recommendations on

what interfaces it should expose in order to support basic Outlook

functionality?

Thanks again,

E

I would not go that route - if it s a transport provider, it would not have

to expose any data (name, address, etc) - all Outlook does is say "here is

the message, send it and let me know when you are done"
