Microsoft made available a couple of technical resources for Outlook developers.
- Outlook 2010: Auxiliary Reference: This reference contains conceptual, reference, and code sample topics to guide you in developing solutions by using Microsoft Outlook 2010 APIs that are exposed outside of the Outlook object model.
The Microsoft Outlook 2010 Auxiliary Reference contains documentation for four APIs, code samples, and a redistributable installer that allow developers to extend and integrate with Outlook 2010. This documentation contains conceptual and reference materials for the following:
- Account Management API
- Data Degradation Layer API
- Free/Busy API
- Outlook Exported APIs
- Outlook 2010: Auxiliary Reference Redistributable Installer and Header File for Rebasing Calendars: This download accompanies the Outlook 2010 Auxiliary Reference documentation. It contains a header file and a redistributable installer that third-party calendar rebasing tools can use to programmatically update calendars that are displayed incorrectly due to daylight saving time (DST).
This set of downloads includes a header file and a redistributable installer:
- TZMoveLibHeaderFile.exe installs the Tzmovelib.h header file, which is designed to be used with the redistributable installer. This header file contains definitions for flags, constants, enumerations, data structures, interfaces (and their identifiers), macros, and functions for the calendar rebasing APIs. By default, the file is installed in C:\Office 2010 Developer Resources\Outlook 2010 Auxiliary Reference\Rebasing Calendars.
- OutlookTimeZoneMoveLibRedist.exe is a redistributable installer that installs the assembly file Tzmovelib.dll in C:\Program Files\MsExTmz. Third-party calendar rebasing tools can use the assembly file to programmatically update calendars that are displayed incorrectly because of daylight saving time. With this assembly, developers can use the same APIs that Outlook and Exchange Server use in their calendar rebasing tools.
In addition, the reference contains a number of sample tasks that use the APIs.
