Hello,
If got a question. I want to start Outlook 2003 with a user mailbox on exchange. But also with a shared maibox. This isn't something you can configure with an outlook prf file says microsoft. But there is away this can be done (by mapi). Microsoft techned "How to add more Exchange mailboxes to a MAPI profile" Artical id 171636. Only de code is in visual basic. Maybe you guys got an idee how to do this in kix? Thanx

Hello and Welcome to the board.

Well just a quick glance of the code shows that the example is C or C++ code and using NULLS etc...
This can not be converted into KiXtart code.

How to add more Exchange mailboxes to a MAPI profile

Here is one that I did..
Code:

Break on CLS
$hklms = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software'
$exe=ReadValue($hklms+"\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\OUTLOOK.EXE","")
Shell($exe) ; -- Start OutlooOK
Sleep 5
;SetFocus("Inbox Ė Microsoft Outlook")
$=SendKeys("~t")
$=SendKeys("v")
$=SendKeys("~r")
SetFocus("Microsoft Exchange Server")
$=SendKeys("+{TAB}{RIGHT}")
$=SendKeys("~d")
SetFocus( "Add Mailbox" )
$=SendKeys("YouInboxYouWant{ENTER}")
$=SendKeys("{ENTER 2}")



Hope this helps.

Kent

Hi,

Sorry to open up an old topic but I'm having the same problem.
I've tried the code posted by Kdyer/Kent but I'm new at the kixtart scripting and not familiar with the sendkeys and how it works.

The outlook window just stay up and nothing happens interms of the mailbox being added.

Is there another way to tackle this? Via launching an outlook automation and adding mailbox through that way?

I also can't determine which ones are the additional mailboxes as I'm reading the "001e660b" key and then finding the last cn entry as mailbox name.

For my default mailbox its coming up with 3 entries. If the mailbox name and usernames are the same I filter by a trim and an if statement and am alright but ocassionally we get users who'd changed from their maiden name but mailbox name hadn't changed and we get problems.

Hope someone have faced similar situation and have a fix.

Cheers

Min

I would recommend starting your own thread.

This is what i did to add Mailboxes to Outlook 2003, I have used Kdyers code on this one as it all works, however I found that the "Send Keys" were not the right ones for 2003. So I have amended them. This one worked for me (it adds 2 Mailboxes, but you can expand that exponentaily). Thank you Kdyer for your code, hope you don't mind the edit!

E.D.

Break on CLS

$hklms = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software'
$exe=ReadValue($hklms+"\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\OUTLOOK.EXE","")
Shell($exe) ; -- Start OutlooOK
Sleep 5
$=SendKeys("~t")
$=SendKeys("a")
$=SendKeys ("~V")
$=SendKeys ("n")
$=SendKeys("~c")
$=SendKeys("~M")
$=SendKeys("+{TAB}{RIGHT}")
$=SendKeys("~d")
$=SendKeys("enterthemailboxnamehere{ENTER}")
$=SendKeys("~d")
$=SendKeys("enterthemailboxnamehere{ENTER}")
$=SendKeys("~a")
$=SendKeys("{ENTER}")
$=SendKeys("n")
$=SendKeys("{ENTER}")

Sendkeys
Isn't that tricky? If someone has a windows in a different language, I bet it doesn't work anymore.
Can't this be done with some COM object?

That would be great but I've been searching for some time now for a method to get this automated and did not find anything yet. Seems Outlook does not support this (yet).

[edit]
I just send a mail to MS's Scripting guy about htis.
Wait and see what comes back.

This might be promising.

Normally MAPI profiles can only be manipulated using Extended MAPI in C/C++/Delphi. Profman library allows to manipulate MAPI profiles from any language, including VB and VB script.

This is the code from example 6. Looks like VBS but I'm not sure because I'm almost blind in the VB(S) world.

It's not that easy.

MS always said that this is not scriptable with an out of the box setup. Could be different with Office/Outlook 2007 but I donít think so.

The extra DLL Witto linked to and the script I posted might get you there but I never bothered to try to translate and test it.
