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.

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 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.

Displaying Full Message Headers and Source in Microsoft Outlook (Windows) – via: Yale ITS

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/07

Showing message headers and source used to be easy in early Outlook versions.

But as of Outlook 2007 they hid the internet message headers even further away than in Outlook 2003.

Steps for Outlook 2007+:

  1. Start Outlook.
  2. Double-click the message for which you want to view full internet headers.
  3. Click Options (2007) or Tags (2010/2013).
  4. The Message Options dialog box is displayed. You are after the Internet headers field at the bottom of the dialog box.

Same for the message source:

  1. Start Outlook
  2. Double-click the message for which you want to view full internet headers.
  3. In the Move section of the Ribbon, click on Actions
  4. Click Other Actions
  5. Click View Source
  6. Notepad (or the program associated with html source files) opens with a file email.txt containing the message source.
