I've followed a solution found at superuser for capturing the unique identifier (UID) of an Outlook message stored in a PST file, and creating a org link of the form:
Selecting this link in emacs opens the message in Outlook using a little Lisp stored as
org-outlook.el in my
.emacs.d/lisp directory, so I can access specific messages right from org. Really nice solution for integrating emails that I need to reference right from my notes.
The problem is that I also like to export my notes as html using
C-c C-e h o, but the Outlook links get rendered as:
<a href="UID">Message subject</a>
which tries (and fails, of course) to open a local file named "UID" instead of:
<a href="outlook:UID">Message subject</a>
which my browser correctly passes off to Outlook.
Is there a way for me to custom define the link export format for an
outlook: link? Kinda a newbie here, and I couldn't find anything on the topic.
org-outlook.el? The former is deprecated in recent versions of org-mode.
org-outlook.el-- posted a few years back in response to a question on superuser -- used
org-add-link-type, which, as for as I saw in the org manual did not have an
export:function. So glad you pointed me to the revised capability of
org-link-set-parameters- that was the ticket! - I revised
export:and it works like a champ. Thank you so much!
org-add-link-typetakes a second optional argument called
export, so you might have been able to do it with that, but it's certainly better to change it to the modern idiom.
