November 2008 Release of MFCMAPI


The November 2008 Release (build 6.0.0.1010) is live: http://www.codeplex.com/MFCMAPI

While we were working on the site for the Outlook MAPI Samples I mentioned that Codeplex allows projects to have a logo, and asked if anyone had any ideas. Next thing I knew, we had a designer lined up ready to draw a custom logo. Not to let an opportunity go to waste, I pointed out how awful the icon for MFCMAPI was. I didn’t really expect to get a new icon, but look what showed up in my mail last night:

 MFCMAPI256x256_Logo

The new icon alone is enough to warrant a new release, but I slipped in some other goodies as well. Here’s a change list – see the Issue Tracker on Codeplex for more details, or look at the code:

  • New icon!
  • View Attachment and Recipient tables on embedded messages (Thanks to Darren for adding this feature. BTW – here’s a cool article here all about Darren!)
  • Add PST now works with Exchange’s MAPI
  • Bunch more PidLid and PidTag properties to sync up with the upcoming MAPI doc refresh

Enjoy.

    should I start a movement to get the old icon back?  :)

    Heavens no! Why would you want to go back to that old looking piece of garbage?

    personal reasons – reminds me my first project in VS 😉  it’s pretty much about MAPI – not pretty, but functional…

    Ah, thank you Steve!  You are truly a gentleman and a scholar.  Took me a while to notice but you fixed the PST issue.  This will make life significantly easier for me and my team in the tricky troubleshooting cases.  What can I send you for Christmas?
