    You can use the RSS feed.

    Can you give me a "for example" ?

    I tried this:

    http://smtp.2022708968.com/service/s...om/~/inbox.rss

    Does that look right? Or am I doing something stupid? ;-)

    Scott,

    Try this:

    http://<your zimbra server>/service/user/<your username>/inbox.rss

    replace "<your zimbra server>" with your domain name
    replace "<your username>" with your email account user@domain.com or user should be fine depending on how your machine is setup.

    Good to see another Virginia area user

    Hi,
    Really thanks for ur response.

    But i am not able to open the link which u gave me.

    Anyways,I will tell in detail what i am trying to do..

    My mail server is configured to outlook express.now i need to read the details from the outlook express and not from the mail server.

    What could be the problem?.

    Thanks in advance


    Regards

    Anuradha

    Yeah, I don't know how you would pull info from Outlook Express.

    If you pull from the Zimbra server directly you won't have to deal with Outlook Express running, so I might try to do the RSS feed as described above.

    You could always use this OE plug-in then get the RSS feed from your Zimbra server. You haven't mentioned it but I assume you are using Zimbra?

    Probably a silly question but are you actually using an RSS reader? If so which one? This technique does work using this url:
    Code:
    http://<servername>/zimbra/home/<yourname>bpye/inbox.rss
    When you enter <yourname> I just use the part without the FQDN and don't forget this is an authenticated feed - you will need the FQDN login name and password to get the feed.
