Outlook Webmail Add-in for Windows Home Server

My latest article is posted to Coding4Fun.  This time, I wrote an add-in for Windows Home Server that allows one to view their email stored in Outlook via the web.  Perhaps I’m the only one, but I have 6 or 7 email accounts all of which POP into Outlook.  Hardly any of them support IMAP or have a webmail interface.  When I’m away from home and want to check my messages, either I have to remote desktop into my home machine and use Outlook that way, or I need to remember to shut down outlook, and then check all accounts separately.  With this add-in, I can now view my Outlook messages via a web browser.

I’m doing something a little different with this article by offering the source code and binaries via CodePlex.  My hope is that you folks out there might find a use for this and decide to extend it.  Hopefully CodePlex will make that process easier.

Check out the article and, as always, comments and questions welcome!
