What's New in this Release?

We are pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.Email for Java 3.6.0. This month’s release includes a new feature for adding color category to an Outlook MSG file. The API’s FollowUpManager class provides methods to add, remove and listing the color categories associated with a MSG file. In addition, removing categories from a MSG file is also supported by this class. For a working example, please refer to our article Setting color category for Outlook MSG file. Microsoft Outlook allows setting event data to an outlook contact. With this month’s release, Aspose.Email now supports setting this information using the MapiContactEventPropertySet class. For a detailed example, please refer to our documentation section adding Contact Event Information to a MapiContact. In addition to the enhancements mentioned above, we have also fixed a number of bugs related to MSG conversion to various formats such as EML/MHTML/TIFF, Outlook appointments reading and PST operations. This, in turn, adds value  and enhances the overall functionality of the API. The main improved features & bug fixes added in this release are listed below
