      Description

      AddressView Qutlook Example (ActiveQt) updated to Qt5

      Un-subscribe from this thread

      Well to make a long story short I placed another ticket for IT to fix the issues with Outlook 2010 “rules” and after a long talk with our local IT expert it became clear that what I wanted to do would have to be done via the Microsoft Outlook api and deeper dive. So I did a google “Qt Outlook” and low and behold I found this piece of code written for Qt4 by Digia as an example

      https://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/activeqt-qutlook.html [qt-project.org]

      I went ahead and updated the Qt4 application “Qutlook” for Qt5 as it looks to be a nice starting point for dealing with Microsoft Outlook. You will find only minor changes to the original source to get the “Qutlook” Qt4 application to work with Outlook 2010 and Qt5

      I did change the name of the Application to AddressView, so a new name for the project file

      “Modified Code can be found here on GitHub“https://github.com/thurberdog/AddressView

      I have noticed a number of folks on the web had trouble finding “msoutl.h”, it’s located in the build directory and is all uppercase, original code had lowercase in the #include “msoutl.h” so I changed this to match the actual file name #include “MSOUTL.h” .

      Enjoy!
