Reading ActiveSync Sent Items

Just last night posted Use AppleScript to read ActiveSync Sent Items in Entourage on the Entourage Help Blog.

Based on an idea someone posted in the Microsoft Entourage newsgroup I decided to see if I could a way to use AppleScript to enable Exchange/iPhone/Entourage users to read mail sent via ActiveSync. Surprisingly, examining the source of a “corrupt” message and determining the problem was very simple—just eliminate the bogus headers.

I whipped up some quick code and posted it back to the newsgroup but at that point I was committed to finishing what I started. The rest of Saturday was spent tweaking the code, adding some error checking and throwing in a couple of things I knew folks would later request.

After a day at the Minnesota State Fair I created the blog post and snapped a few screenshots. Nothing explains a computer problem like screenshots!

MacSurfer was quick to pick up the post and by this morning I already had my first comment and feature request. Did a quick Google search and found some posts on MacRumors and MacFixIt about the problem. I registered with the sites and posted links back to the entry there.
