Does anyone know how to get new mail notifications from an email account using Microsoft Exchange server? My work email uses this protocol and I would like a visual method of notifying me I have new emails because it often outlook is minimised.
That would be amazing, if you manage to implement it i’m sure a few people in my office would be interesting in buying them as it would be a really useful too. Do you have any idea when this could happen?
IMAP is already possible with the BlinkStick Client, but it is not active in many Exchange environments. So the idea with the connection directly to the Exchange is a good one.
In addition I would think about an EWS interface. My experience is that you don´t have the problem with incompatibilities if you are using EWS. The Exchange Web Services can be used since Exchange 2010 (or they work well since 2010, maybe it was possible to get it running with 2007 already).
Following up if there is any new information on this? I started a similar thread here
I’m looking for this level of integration as well as a trigger when the 15 minutes before a meeting notification pops up which I’m guessing is a client side activity requiring some sort of event notification locally from Outlook. If reminders can be monitored/received via the Exchange Web Services (and I need to verify they are available in my environment) that would be an option too.
I’m not afraid of doing some coding myself (even if it’s VBA.)
Sorry to cross post but I hadn’t found this thread when I created mine.
Looks like EWS was the way to go. They have it open here (some organizations I believe will block those APIs) although I had to stick with Exchange 2007 API because that’s what they are running here.
I’d be willing to share my code but I don’t want to create my own GitHub repository as that implies I would be supporting it which I don’t want to commit to. I suppose I could add it to the existing Examples .net Solution on GitHub.
Only problem is I probably hardcoded some stuff that’s specific to the Nano since that’s what I had to test with.
you can create a new thread and present your application there. Just upload your source as ZIP over Dropbox, Google or so and share a link in that thread.
I think there are a lot people interested in this.
