How Does OpenProtocols Differ From Other Connectors?
The OpenProtocols Connector is a fully integrated messaging service provider (rather than a simple Outlook® add-in). It is comprised of a Message
Store, Transport, Address Book and Free-Busy provider. The combination of these as a service provides the highest level of Outlook® integration.
Other distinctions of OpenProtocols Connector include...
It uses open Internet protocols to communicate rather than proprietary protocols that are either single purposed or require licensing.
This provides flexibility and allows the connector to communicate with a wide array of message service platforms.
The connector provides a number of extended features that are not available in other Outlook® message service providers (offline support,
free-busy and header only download are examples).
The connector applies changes (flags, reply, deletions, changes, etc.) as they happen rather than relying on scheduled updates.
