ahhcommmeooonnn! you think 0xa5a5a5a5 is going to stop people????
btw have you searched for "MAPI protocol" on google.com? 8,000 entries.
5% are glossary / dictionary definitions. 0.5% are c.v.'s, 5% are books
and tech explanations of the published MAPI api, the rest are client and
server apps for the Win32 programming environment _except_ for HP
Openmail, and except for about 2-3 references to the evolution archive
references [hi guys].
so, the people that are being stopped from competing are, well, everyone
else who isn't in the Win32 programming environment. guess what,
boysngirls, that's us!!
