Over the last few months I’ve had the privilege of being one of the contributors to the Sobiens SharePoint Outlook Connector project on CodePlex.
The project is a VSTO package that gives Outlook a new tree view panel showing connected SharePoint sites, providing a drag and drop interface to save emails and their attachments to the document libraries of your choice.
The Outlook Connector lets you drag emails from Outlook into document libraries in SharePoint.
The new release gives users a context menu when you right-drag email across, giving options to Copy or Move the email as an Outlook .msg file, or to Copy the email and attachments as Word documents.
The new version also shows all document library types, not only those made from the Document Library template.
Hopefully, we’ve also closed a few bugs without creating too many new ones!Technorati Tags: Outlook, SharePoint, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint Development
