November 2011 Update for MFCMAPI and MrMAPI (Think, "MFCMAPI, You're looking kind of Metro" release)

SGriffin's MAPI Internals - November 2011 Release of MFCMAPI and MrMAPI

"The November 2011 Release (build is live: http://mfcmapi.codeplex.com.

Note that build number. That’s right. I jumped all the way from 6 (where I’ve been stuck forever) to 15. That’s the sort of jump that’s normally only accompanied by a full UI refresh. And that’s exactly what you get! I’ve overhauled just about every aspect of the UI for a more modern, some might say “Metro inspired”, look. I’ll admit, there’s still some work to be done (I didn’t get to scrollbars for instance) but this is a pretty good start. Let’s take a look:


I’ve drastically slimmed down the menus, stuffing most of the little used functionality into Advanced menus that most of you will never need to open. The old, usually empty, File menu is gone and Session now takes prominence. This should help new users immensely. Long time users of MFCMAPI may want to spend a little time figuring out where their favorite features went, but nothing’s been cut.


If you do MAPI/Outlook/PST's/EDD/ESI this is one of those must have in your toolbox utilities...
