2005 What Would You Want From ColdFusion Microsoft Exchange Integration?
Here is your chance to help spec what could very well be a feature in the next major ColdFusion update! Ready?
One frequent ColdFusion feature request is for Microsoft Exchange integration, and this is something we are considering for "Scorpio". Most ColdFusion use is on internal networks - intranets and portals and departmental sites. And so when you think about the types of applications being built in ColdFusion, Exchange integration actually makes a whole lot of sense.
But what does integration mean to you? What features do you need? How could you use Exchange integration from within your ColdFusion applications? Obviously, ColdFusion can send e-mail via <cfmail>, receive e-mail via <cfpop>, and access directory services via <cfldap>. But that is using Exchange, not really integrating with it. So, what else could you really use?
I have some specific ideas myself, but I am not going to share them (yet) so as to not lead the conversation. Rather, I'd like you to share your ideas and suggestions. If your organization uses Microsoft Exchange, please post your thoughts (the more detail the better).
