Sending Mail From Ms Office Applications Directly Through Lotus Notes 4.6.X

Since R5.02c (I think) there is in User Preferences - Additional Options the
feature "Enable MS Office SendTo to Notes". Wouldn't it be nice to enable this
feature for R4.6.x as well...
Instead of all those MAPI Procedures in co-orporation with Windows Messaging,
try the following to send it directly to Notes.

1. Copy file

Copy the nmailman.dll file to the Notes directory (i.e. C:Notes). (This file
is beinging installed with R5.02c (or higher) in the R5 Folder.)

2. Edit registry

Open the Registry Editor (Start - Run - regedit - OK)
Open the HKEY:

hkey_localmachinesoftwaremicrosoftoffice8.0common

(Important: 8.0 stands for MS Office 97 ; 9.0 stands for MS Office 2000 and
I-Explorer 5.x)

In the above mentioned HKEY, add a new key (Edit -New - Key). Name this key
MAPIDLL.

Select this new key, there is shown a (Default) String value in the right pane.
Leave this one the way it is.
Now add a new String Value (Edit - New - String Value) and name it DLL32. The
value of this String is the path to the nmailman.dll file
(i.e.C:Notesnmailman.dll).

3. Closing up

Close the Registry Editor (Reboot is not nessesary) and Start any MS Office
Application (i.e. MS Word, MS Excel or MS Powerpoint). Choose File - Send To -
Mail Recipient.
Now Lotus Notes starts (When it not has been started jet) and promts for the
(Lotus Notes) password. After entering the password and pressed , Notes
opens a new memo with the MS Office document as an attachment.

To give the attachment a logical name, the MS document must first be saved in
the right MS application before it is being send to Notes.
