We are implementing a Workflow project and are planning to use MAP for Outlook connection. Our current system is Windows 95 but we will migrate to XP before launching the Workflow project. When we look at the SAP part, there is no MAPI support for XP. Do you have anything about it? Is SAP working on it or not? What can we do to implement Workflow project with XP Outlook connection?
Here is the latest word from SAP:
With the introduction of Outlook 2002 (OL2002), Microsoft changed the MAPI interface to incompatible. It is then no longer possible to use the SAP MAPI Service Provider under OL2002. Microsoft has admitted the error and is working on a solution. SAP has not provided a time frame as to when they will deliver a solution. For more information, see OSS Note 0480685.
