Connecting to Outlook

Hello all

Does anyone know how can I connect to Outlook's database (it is possible via ACCESS in their  Exchange() datasource)?

Once in Outlook/Exchange there is a Folder object in which our company stores archived and current emails which I need to count, explore and report stats.

Any idea will help.

Thanks

Josh

Hi,

i tried this too, but never found an easy solution. The solution that i used was to create an ACCESS database, that has a database connection to OUTLOOK. And than use in Qlikview ACCESS to fetch the data from OUTLOOK. You can choose to first store the data in ACCESS and not. In the last case ACCESS is a kind of hub to access the data in Qlikview.

Hope it helps
