Zarafa-Inspector: A Graphical MAPI Explorer

June 16, 2014 by Jelle van der Waa

June 2, 2014 by Mark Dufour  

, , ,

The main advantage of Python over especially C++ is that productivity is greatly increased. There is no compilation step, so building software becomes faster and (remote) debugging becomes easier. Automatic memory... Read full post
