Yes, you're right. "outlook://FOLDER" is a legitimate URL. I don't know why I said that nonsense about "outlook urls cannot have a double-slash" because I knew about the folder linking, but I had personally decided that linking to a folder would be useless.
Here's a link supporting folder linking: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/158135 Here's my original link supporting the GUID linking: http://www.davidtan.org/outlook-2007-adding-outlook-url-protocol/ So I think this is the best solution, and if you agree to it, I'll work on it and submit another patch: "outlook:.*" links will be treated as zim links unless the part after the colon is exactly 140 alpha-numeric characters long. Here is an actual outlook guid-based url: Outlook:00000000E00744D8C7D8B7418DAE521ABB4BDF940700821B2170E9E7F04FA38DF7EC21DE487100000F59B72F000081505B8B370BEA44B01EA558905E103700000001762A0000 Sound good?
