API call on sent messages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm a bit new to developing Outlook extensions, so looking for some basic guidance on options. I'm looking to create an Outlook extension that makes an API call when certain messages are sent. This should work on Windows and Mac, with our without an Exchange account. (It does not need to work on the web client.) I do not care what language - I can even make the API call via curl if the script gives command line access.

    My first thought was to create a VBA script, then create a rule that triggers the script when the message is sent. On Mac this would trigger an Applescript.

    I've also looked at responding to events, which looks Windows only, and the Javascript API, which looks like it requires an Exchange server. 

    Am I on the right track? Any other suggestions?
