Hi,

I installed the Alpha connector and tried to configure a file backed account but I continually get "Please Configure an Open Connector"

How do I get started?

Hello,

Thanks for your continued interest in Outlook
Connector.

Yes we have been taking our time on this one
haven't we :)

The project is moving forward though.  I am
hoping that stable, functioning betas will
attract new resources to the project in the
future.  But as you've suspected, as of now,
resources are very limited.

Quick status
1. MAPI Message Storage Provider and MAPI
   Transport provider both work.  There hasn't
   been _any_ performance optimization on those
   yet, so expect a first run of >3mins and
   subsequent startups may take that long as
   well.  Performance optimization is scheduled
   for last.  But the core functionality for
   adding/deleting/modifying CalDAV events on
   CalDAV servers work and have been tested
   on Cosmo [ http://cosmo.osafoundation.org ]
   and Oracle CalDAV [ not released as yet ].

2. The final major component left for
   development, The address book provider is
   being worked on.  This where I've been
   spending my dev time lately.  This will will
   allow the sharing of individual calendars.
   I estimate this component can be in Beta
   with a solid month on development; but that
   depends on our our other/paid projects are
   going.

3. Working on getting Bedework CalDAV
   [ http://bedework.org ] support done.

4. The MS2 is 'Milestone 2'.  The current
   build on sourceforge is 'Milestone 1'.
   That was the first 'release' build of the
   project that would actually do something
   useful.  It will add/modify/delete CalDAV
   events on a CalDAV server.  MS2 fixes a
   few annoying bugs so that users can test
   individual calendars a bit more.  It also
   introduces a new refactored set of
   objects in the two providers, and a stub
   provider for the adress book.  I hope to
   put this out by Wednesday, but as usual
   things are being delayed by other
   projects, so maybe this weekend instead.
   As soon as it is verified that the recent
   changes have not broken the CalDAV
   protocol interaction with the supported
   servers ( Bedework, Cosmo, Oracle ), it
   will be released.

After we have the address book provider working
I will focus on speed/memory optimization and
the random features that testers may require.

The 3 month target is definitely doable.  I'd
like it to be more like 2.  But that's not 100%
up to me.  Someone with very strong C++/Win32/
COM experience and has access to the relevant
tools ( MSVC 2005, Outlook 2003 ) would make a
_huge_ difference if they put in a 5+ hrs/week
 on this.  Also access to funds to open tickets
with MS, get other consultants, offset time
expense would help as well.

Best regards,
Kervin

        I've been following this project since 2005 (and
occasionally before
then). Since the 6/12/06 Alpha release, there has
been no messaging on
the list. But I do see that the SVN has much more
activity, entirely by
Kervin (as is practically all development for the
length of the
project). Now some source is "Ready for server
testing, prior to MS2.",
but I don't know what that means.

        Is this a one-man project, with basically only
Kervin producing it? Has
it stalled? Is there any chance that it will produce
a releasable
connector within the next 3-9 months running as it
is currently?
