Hi guys,

I'm still extremely new to the development world. However I have been tasked to find a way to create an add-on that links to outlook in the form of a ribbon, and then get data from outlook into my SQL database. I have the add-on up and running and it is displaying where it should. However I have been looking for help on how to get the information from outlook into my database, I have looked at multiple sites but all i seem to find is a way to display the inbox or sub-folder contents in a window.

Is there a way to get information from outlook (like who sent the email, or the body content) to save to my database depending on what button I click in my add-on? For example, see if a contact already exists in my database, based on email (thinking of using Linq to query the data) by clicking view.

I hope this makes sense?
Could really just use a nod in the right direction.
