Options to the SAP MAPI Service Provider

Is there any other way of receiving the SAP Business Workflow Work Items in the Outlook mailbox, access the task container using the Submit Control and perform operations such as the Forward of the Work Item, without having to use the SAP MAPI Service Provider?

There seems to have been quite a bit of interest recently in SAP Workflow and e-Mail Connectivity.

Exchange Connector can not deliver work items to your Outlook/Lotus Notes mailbox. All it can do is notify you when you need to access your Business Workplace because items have arrived.

MAPI does provide access to Work Items though many of my clients have had quite a few issues getting this to work. However, it does not provide functionality such as Forward of Work Items, etc.

This is why I developed my own custom solution called Desktop Workplace (http://www.desktopworkplace.com). It allows the user to forward, reserve, execute, etc Work Item all form within their Outlook/Lotus Notes Inbox.
