Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/15

Just when I thought I made a note of a password I hardly ever use, I didn’t, luckily this open source tools understands how to recover many kinds of passwords: AlessandroZ/LaZagne: Credentials recovery project.

It looks like gmail finally understands Outlook Calendar entries

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/12

For a very long time, gMail did nothing with Outlook Calendar entires.

So I had to view at the message source, then translate them to Google Calendar entries myself.

--_000_430b30b9ffd74d959b74ab7ba778b487ultrawarenl_
Content-Type: text/calendar; charset="utf-8"; method=REQUEST
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

...

As of late, they seem to be processed into Google Calendar compatible entries. Nice!

How to Add Your Gmail Account to Outlook 2013 and 2016 Using IMAP

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/05/11

If you use Outlook to check and manage your email, you can easily use it to check your Gmail account as well. You can set up your Gmail account to allow you to synchronize email across multiple machines using email clients instead of a browser.

Oh: you need to lower your Gmail security for Outlook 2013 as the latter isn’t up to par on security. For that, follow similar steps like in “the user name or password for imap.gmail is incorrect” – iPad, iPod or iPhone with iOS < 7.

Mixing x64 Outlook with x86 Delphi: never a good idea…

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/02/07

Via [WayBack] Hi all,I’m a bit stuck here with a “simple” task.Looks like Outlook 2016 doesn’t supports “MAPISendMail”, at least, if i trigger this, Thunderbird… – Attila Kovacs – Google+:

Basically only MAPISendMail works cross architecture and only if you fill all fields.

This edited [WayBackemail – MAPI Windows 7 64 bit – Stack Overflow answer by [WayBack] epotter is very insightful (thanks [WayBackRik van Kekem – Google+):

Calls to MAPISendMail should work without a problem.

For all other MAPI method and function calls to work in a MAPI application, the bitness (32 or 64) of the MAPI application must be the same as the bitness of the MAPI subsystem on the computer that the application is targeted to run on.

In general, a 32-bit MAPI application must not run on a 64-bit platform (64-bit Outlook on 64-bit Windows) without first being rebuilt as a 64-bit application.

For a more detailed explanation, see the MSDN page on Building MAPI Applications on 32-Bit and 64-Bit Platforms

View Headers and Source from Outlook .msg file – via Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/05/23

Sometimes people give you .msg files saved from Outlook instead of forwarding those mails by e-mail.

Opening a .msg file requires Outlook.

You don’t need to bind Outlook to an e-mail account for this (so you can skip those steps when asked the first time Outlook opens). An Office installation that includes Outlook suffices.

After opening the message:

  1. Open the toolbar if it’s not open yet
  2. Under “Move” choose “Actions” -> “Other Actions”
  3. Then choose either “Message Header” or “View Source”

For some HTML messages, “View Source” is not available. I’m not yet sure why.
