MAPI and Outlook independence


#1

Hi!
I found that C++ version of the library utilizes MAPI. However, you claim that the library does not depend on Outlook. On the other hand, Microsoft distributes MAPI as a part of Outlook: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/client-developer/outlook/mapi/installing-the-mapi-subsystem
Thus, I wonder how it can be that aspose.email does not depend on Outlook?

@Alex_Koshulian,

I like to share that Aspose.Email has no dependency on MS Outlook. For more details about API, please visit following information link for your kind reference.

Thanks for your response. Why does the library use MAPI then?

@Alex_Koshulian,

We have our own MAPI library in Aspose.Email API.
