We have two Outlook addins for MS Office versions 2000-2010 that update a database when eMails are received and sent, based on matching the eMail addresses and other criteria of the sender and recipient.
Outlook 2013 doesn't support add ins, so we need the code to be rewritten as an app or a wrapper round the existing addin that will interact with Outlook 2013.
The existing addins are written in VB6 and the source code is available, as are samples of the databases that the app has to interact with which are MS Access and MS SQL Server.
Currently there are three parts to the addins, firstly the two dlls which are added in to Outlook to handle incoming and outgoing messages respectively and secondly the third dll that is called by the first two which updates the database. The design is such that the update dll call can also be called from an MS Exchange sink when it is required to file incoming and outgoing mail from MS Exchange, but rewriting the Exchange sink is not part of the project but should be born in mind when coding
The project is to include an installer should one be required.
This project is part of an ongoing rewrite of the whole of a commercial CRM application, and the successful freelancer will have the opportunity to work on other parts of the project over the coming year.
