Drag & Drop Access To Document Libraries Within Outlook

  Asked By: Bhagavati    Date: Apr 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 12516

Does anyone know of any Outlook Addins or other mechanisms of
transfering Outlook messages and attachments quickly and easily (i.e.
drag and drop) in to WSS document libraries?
Ideally some sort of site or document library hierachry would be
directly available in Outlook.
Do you have any hints on how I could code this, if there's nothing
already available?

You can Save As directly to a document  library form the outlook  message
itself - just use http://<server>/<sitename>/<doclib> as the location
save in. From there you can navigate the site  as well...

within it.

Does anybody know of such a application or source code  that may assist
me in achieving it (e.g. how to obtain the Sharepoint structure
