I have a very simple task I would like to be able to do: Add a button to outlook that will send a copy of the current message to a remote server via HTTP POST.
The use case is simple: we have email messages that we want to archive and attached to a web-based system. To do that, the simplest thing to do is give the users a button which, when clicked, gets the email (along with teh to / from / attachments, etc...) turns them all into JSON string, which will then POST the values to an API for the web application.
can anyone give me some links to tutorials that will get me acquainted with:
1. The process of building a simple add-in
2. accessing the "current email" mail object and its properties.
