Hi everyone, We want to include CRM functionality into a Mendix application. We want to users to be able to view email conversation history for a certain contact, deal or quotatation etc... Also, we want users to be able to send adhoc e-mails from within the Mendix app and push e-mail conversations to the App from an online e-mail client. 1) Has anyone ever built an integration like this? And if so, what kind of e-mail client/mailserver? 2) Is there a Mendix module out there which offers a good interface for sending e-mails? Thanks!
I have done some experiments with a couple of modules:
IMAP/POP3 incoming email
SMTP Email module sendig email
They both worked on 6.8.0 So it is basically combining the two and you are off.
If the online client happens to be an Exchange server, you might also look into a straight Exchange integration. The API is solid and well-documented.
We have built a partial interface with EWS which is indeed solid.
