Computers and devices are more connected now than ever before. Why? Because the humans who use those computers need to collaborate. We need to share information, and we need to do it quickly, without regard to the physical distance that separates us. Corporate solution developers now more than ever have the opportunity and responsibility to enable people to communicate in ways never before possible.CDO and MAPI Programming with Visual Basic: Developing Mail and Messaging Applications dives deep into Microsoft's Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) and the Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI), then moves into succinct explanations of the types of useful messaging applications that can be written in Visual Basic.Microsoft has given the Visual Basic community Collaboration Data Objects (CDO)--a technology that goes far beyond simple email, fully into the realm of information workflow. CDO enables Visual Basic applications to exchange not only classic email, but in fact any information in a straightforward and easy way. The Internet--sometimes seen as a barrier by developers--is turned into an open pipe, ready to take your application's data around the world. Routing documents and building email list servers is just the beginning. Harness the power of worldwide communication in your everyday business applications.MAPI is the cornerstone of messaging on the Windows platforms, and profoundly influences the way you will write your collaboration applications. Understanding this technology lays the foundation for adding effective collaboration capabilities to your own applications.CDO and MAPI Programming with Visual Basic: Developing Mail and Messaging Applications fills a gap in an exciting and relatively young, yet popular, technology that lacks adequate documentation.

CDO & MAPI Programming with Visual Basic Review

By Markus Sandy

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media CDO & MAPI Programming with Visual Basic::

The sample application does not run "out of the box" under Windows 2000. It just hangs during the splash. More importantly, the so called "sample code" available for the book is just a simple VB application and C++ DLL and does not include many of the various useful (and sometimes long) snippets of code from the text. Be prepared for some (re)typing. Makes you wonder why the author constantly brags about his coding solutions for various problems. Cough up all the code!!! It seems like the quality of O'Reilly books has been slipping over the last year or two. Wait for the second edition.

Comments about O'Reilly Media CDO & MAPI Programming with Visual Basic::

Very good history and future of CDO & MAPI. Very good explanation of CDO/MAPI objects, classes and methods. Very good code examples. Nice Factoids too. All in all very good book, which has paid off many times over! Between 4 and 5 owls.

CDO & MAPI Programming with Visual Basic Review

By Ruckriegel, Rudolf

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media CDO & MAPI Programming with Visual Basic::

The book CDO & MAPI is a very good book for explaining programmig with CDO and MAPI. I am a programmer on an AS/400 and so I am a newcomer in Visual Basic. So the bigges problem is to get the right books for the problems I have to solve in our projects even in the windows world.

This book is not easy to read for a newcomer, but it explains everything about CDO adn MAPI very well. It is really worth the money I paid. The only thing that could be better is, that the code for the examples is complete and not several parts on several pages.

But all in all a very good book like all the other O'reilly books.

Thanks to Mr. Grundgeiger
