Drag and drop blog publishing from Outlook

by oneafrikan on March 21, 2005

Kunal has released a cool little app that watches an Outlook folder, and basically puts what’s in that folder, into your blog. You can download ver 0.8 of OutlookMT from here.

I had some problems installing, which were easily fixed by pinging Kunal and getitng a quick solution.
Here’s what you need to do:

1. Use your Outlook CD (or your MS Office Install CD), Add/Remove components, Make sure “.NET Programability” is installed for Outlook.
2. Drop the files from the zip file into the Office11 folder.
3. Set up the config file to match your blog.
4. Run the exe – should work fine!
Notes: The BlogId doesn’t work with WordPress – just posts to the default blog cat.

And that’s it – go forth and post to your blog ;-)

Heads up for Robert Scoble who put me onto Outlook MT
