Query Lotus Notes for number of Unread Mail in URL or Data Dump.
Posted on 2011-10-06
I need to display the number of unread emails a user has on a web page.
We have all see the Link for mail and then a (4) behind it meaning there are 4 unread emails in the account.
The email server is lotus. Is there a way i could provide the username and password from the user to a lotus database and get the number of unread emails back? Maybe in a url?
Another option would be to query lotus database every couple of minutes and dump the data into an sql database that i would then query with the web page. For instance, could i creat a table from lotus that lists the username along with the number of unread messages? If so i could make the web page query this table.
