What's the border between the interface from mindmanager and outlook ?
Does it working only behind the server of one company, or would it be able to run between the different servers of many companys ?

Hello Jörg. I may be out of date but I think it communicates directly with the local Outlook client rather than directly with an Exchange server. If you need to access emails from multiple sources, you could configure the Outlook client to sync mails with other servers too.

Hi Nick, you are up to date :-)
Yes it's possible to configure the Outlook client with other servers too.
But thats not realy my question... I must tell you more detail about my question.

In my company it works fine with other users of the company.
I send them a task from outlook and they take over this task.
Parallel I send the task from outlook through my MM map.
Every change of the tasks of somebody I can see in outlook or in MM map.

With my question I meant is this still working if I do this with somebody outside the server of my company ?

Sorry for my tooooo short first question.

I think it would work if Outlook keeps a copy of the task you sent, and is it synchronised when they update it.  Otherwise I don't think you can connect a MindManager topic to another Exchange server. It only connects to your local Outlook client and synchronises data from there.

When I send a task from my employer account through my email account of another company - so from one exchange server through another exchange server - it doesn't work.

I think there are some security limitations thats that not possible.
Have somebody found a way that it works ?
