I receive many questions, how with CDO (Microsoft Collaboration Data
Objects) developer worked on Borland DELPHI can access Microsoft Exchange
Server Information Store.
It is very easy (thank you Borland and Microsoft), and one small and very
simple MAIL reader can be build for 30-40 minutes (assumed, if you know
DELPHI and CDO, and have 5-10 minutes for a coffee or tea).
The demo is found at
DELPHI source at
and compiled Application at
The Application (simple MAIL agent) demonstrate how-to:
Login to Exchange Server
Get available Information Stores
Get and work with Information Store Folders Collection
Get and work with Folder
Get and work with Messages (enumerate, read, delete and send)
Get and work with Recipients
Please be aware CDO are properly installed in your PC.
