Hi,


First, thank you for your time.

I have a weird question but...I would like to know if it is possible to use Outlook to send email or Odoo if outlook is not installed.

I saw some code for Outlook and Python but how is possible to know if the client has outlook?


Btw, is it possible to import some windows library on linux?


Thank you,


Selverine

Please do a search before asking:

odoo outlook 

There was an official plugin until version 6/7 but now is not offered anymore by Odoo. You can try to install a free third party plug in from here or a paid one from here (german). 

Hi, I already have this plugin. However it is just allow me from outlook to create a new contact when I received an email inside my outlook. Me,what I would like it is when I press the button "send order" that it open the outlook installed on my client side instead of the classical page to send email through Odoo/OpenERP. You think it is possible? Thank you, PS: I use OpenERP7

Hi Federico, The mailto is quite a good idea but it works with OpenERP/Odoo only if you click on the email adress of someone. You think it is possible to configure the module mail in order to use the mailto tools instead of the OpenERP mail manager? Thank you a lot, Selverine

Since we are speaking about coding... Everything is possible! I don't have any experience with OpenERP mailing system, never used it, the new time I'll create a dev DB I have a look on it but don't ask me when... :P

------EDIT-----


I am still looking for a solution.

I will try to do it with some mailto function because I have the impression after my research that it will be impossible to have some code to Open Outlook (my server is on Linux).

I will keep you in touch!
