Hi All, I need to be able to allow the end user to attach emails from Outlook to a record when they are editing or adding it. I am not sure how to get started on this any suggestions for documentation or sample code? Thanks!
Well, Outlook is a client side program - so your users will first have to save the email to a known location, then upload it through a servlet to your server. Then you can attach the file to an email you generate and send with the JavaMail API.
That all sounds a little clumsy though. The easiest way to do it would be to have user cut-and-paste the contents of the email into a textarea in a form and send this with the request to your servlet. If you wanted to drag and drop an email into a form, I've no idea if this is possible, but if it were it would probably need some sort of ActiveX control.
