Centralise Contacts For IMAP
Posted on 2011-03-23
I recently configure Outlook 2010 for my client to use IMAP instead of POP3 (it was using POP3 before and now its using IMAP). The reason for configuring it as IMAP is that my client wanted access to his mail account from all the computers in his firm.
He also has an MS Access Database wherein contact details of many of his customers are stored. I have two questions:
1. Since Outlook has been configured to IMAP, the contacts, calender etc need to be centralised. That is to say, when the client adds any of his customer details into Outlook from any computer, those details should be reflected in the Outlook of all the remaining computers.
2. I need to program a module in Access VBA to allow the user to automatically add customer infromation into Outlook contacts. If the contact exists, then it should merely update that contact.
This would be a nice learning curve for me as I am not aware how Outlook structures itself as far as contacts and calenders are concerned. Any pointers and help is highly apprecited.
