With the Outlook add-in, the Mindbreeze InSpire search is now integrated into Microsoft Outlook.
If the add-in is activated, a Mindbreeze search starts parallel to the Outlook search.
There are two ways to install the Add-In. In the first variant, a user without administrative rights can install the Add-In via the browser from the Search Client. In the second variant, an administrator can install and preconfigure an MSI Installer system-wide.
In order to use the Outlook plugin, the option "External URL" must be set in client service. The External URL is any URL under which the client service is available. Furthermore, a valid SSL certificate must be copied to the client service.
First, the Outlook plugin is installed under “Plugins“.
Then it is added under “Client Services > Client Resources“ and activated.
The add-in can now be downloaded to the client under “Settings“ -> ‘Outlook Add-In‘“.
Now the add-in can be installed. After the installation, the Outlook add-in is at your immediate disposal (re-start Outlook).
In the Outlook plugin package you will find an MSI setup file. The MSI setup installs the Outlook Add-In system-wide. The setup requires “Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5” () and “Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime” () to be installed. Note: The MSI setup does not show a wizard or other elements, but installs the add-in immediately without further interaction. After successful installation the Outlook Add-In is active for all users of the system.
The following chapter explains the activation and the setting of the add-in in Microsoft Outlook 2010.
You can find the add-in in the menu item 3, “Add-Ins“. There the points “Deactivate Mindbreeze Search“ and “Settings“ are displayed.
With this button you can activate or deactivate the add-in.
In the settings, the desired client URL is specified.
When the configuration of the add-in is complete, the outlook add-In is ready for use.
If the add-in no longer needed, it can be uninstalled under "Programs and Features".
To do this, look for the following program:
Mindbreeze Outlook Add-In stores configuration settings in the user's Windows registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER). An administrator has the possibility to set default settings in the Windows Registry of the machine (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE).
If a user has saved his own settings, the user settings are used, otherwise the settings of the machine are used.
The registry path of the user settings is:
The registry path for local machine settings is:
