Are there any addon that allows alfresco to integrate with outlook? If not, can any alfresco developer shed some light how I can achieve it. Mainly the estimation of effort that will be required, the time and additional knowledge, difficulty, etc.
The use case that I am trying to achieve is that the user will select a message(email) from the outlook and press the Alfresco button(to be created via plugin) in the outlook that will pop up a window in the outlook requesting user's login credentials for the Alfresco after login the user can browse through the repository and select the folder for upload and click the upload button in the window that will upload the message and the attachments in the Alfresco from outlook.
You asked "if" there was an addon, and only "if not" did you want to have other input. So I was following your if-else construct.
Without really knowing your specific requirements, scope and use cases you want to address, no one can give you a reasonable estimate and/or approach to "how to build it". Also, if any one would have detailed info on this, chances are they'd build their own integration and potentially not want to share their IP. Lastly, isn't it your job as a Sr. Software Engineer to figure this out, instead of requesting from / relying on information provided by some anonymous bloke on a public web site?
I have edited the question with the requirements hope it would make sense now.
I am just starting to build this and thought of asking the community about it for some clarity on how to proceed. What I require is some points that can help me figuring out the what I might need or challenges that I can come across.
