This means allowing access to mail messages and headers from the MAPI API or sending mail from a MAPI app through Messenger. This is not related to using a MAPI mail client with Navigator.

Whiteboard: HELP WANTED
Target Milestone: M15
Bulk-resolving requests for enhancement as "later" to get them off the Seamonkey bug tracking radar. Even though these bugs are not "open" in bugzilla, we welcome fixes and improvements in these areas at any time. Mail/news RFEs continue to be tracked on http://www.mozilla.org/mailnews/jobs.html
reopening to re-assign
Great :-) I'll just clear the LATER resolution here.
Reopen mail/news HELP WANTED bugs and reassign to email@example.com
Chris, anything happening with this?

Not much progress has been made, going to re-assign to nobody so that I am not sitting on these issues. Will probably pick up again in a month or two if they are still open issues when I have time and I can actually make some progress first.

*** Bug 62790 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This breaks many other applications that use mail. If Mozilla is your only mail client, you are hosed. In particular, Groove (www.groove.net) needs this.
Because Mozilla does not support Simple MAPI yet, the mail-related application we are developing will not be Mozilla compatible.
I fail to see how anyone can use Mozilla or Netscape 6. All sorts of mail link functionality breaks here. People (you developer typre!) are worried about nonsense such as the chromes, while important, basic functionality is missing. Only in recent builds can one actually file a new bookmark! Later is not a good answer for this bug.
4xp = this feature was in Netscape 4.x, Outlook (Express), Pegasus and probably any other mailer on the win32 platform. nsCatFood = this causes problems for people who want their application to interact with mail. This makes it impossible for people to use Mozilla exclusively as their mail client if they require such features.
Keywords: 4xp, nsCatFood

After furthur research it appears we should be using CMC API instead of Simple MAPI. CMC (common messenging calls) API is newer and cross platform. There is a bit more information at http://www.dorn.org/uni/mapi/cmc.html Looking at the IE's Internet Settings, mozilla should be included under Mail, News and Address Book. If this bug does not cover those areas then a new bug should be created to fix them.
Summary: Simple MAPI → CMC API support (similar to Simple MAPI)
Ian, if you are interested in having CMC support added, perhaps you should file a new bug as an RFE. I'm changing the Summary back to the original one, since that's what this bug is about. CMC is totally different than Simple MAPI, and I am not aware of any programs which support it, offhand. All mail programs I know of on Win32 support Simple MAPI... it's the standard in the Win32 world. CMC is also no longer supported by Microsoft. http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q262/7/01.ASP#Common
Summary: CMC API support (similar to Simple MAPI) → Simple MAPI
hmm, if CMC support is not present in other applications then there is no point in adding it. Is there an alternative to Simple MAPI on unix/mac?
Not that I am aware of, unfortunately. (at least on the unix/linux end) I'm not so sure about mac... I hear that there are Simple MAPI mac apps, but I cannot verify this. It would be nice if there was some sort of XP standard for this kind of thing, but it's just not the way it is. This is pretty much a Win32-only issue/enhancement, but I think it's important, especially since 4.x has this support.
netscape had a mail api which people kinda used. there's a bug somewhere about it. (Third-Party Mail and News Client [postal.h] search devedge.)

Umm since this Windows only why the All/All? Setting to PC/Win2k
OS: All → Windows 2000
Hardware: All → PC
Would anyone have any objection to my making this a dup of 91702? I know this bug came first but that bug already has a lot of the people who have volunteered to work on it.
why not do it the other way round? This bug is blocking other bugs already, it will cause lots of spam.
As long as it is fixed, I do not care what you call it. Just move the list of names to the other bug.
Doing the honors for Scott, marking this duplicate of 91702. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 91702 ***
