RE: Is there a server-friendly Notes API (or equivalent) for accessing Domino email

In exchange, you can do cool stuff like that. The data is stored in a format that you can query from ado. So a background process can thread through a series of mailboxes, extract information, etc. (presuming the process has the right permissions).

In domino, you cannot use ado... but you can still use a background thread to access various mail stores. IN this case, the mail stores happen to be proprietary NSFs (Notes Storage Facilities). For example, take a peak at how journaling works.

But to do this, the process needs access to the notes client DLLs, in order to do the API calls needed. This can be delivered as a notes database that lives on a mail server. (The mail server has the product installed, so no problems here). Or else you can create a service somewhere in 'domino-land' that your process communicates with do to the work.

I have spent a lot of time writing tools that interact with exchange/outlook and domino applications and domino mail/and dwa. (for example, I wrote the mail/calender integration in a crm product []). You are welcome to contact me if you want to go into specifics. timothy_b_nichols+dontspam -at -
