Outlook Client Securty Fix

If you are using my Outlook Synchronization application then you might have encountered the annoying Outlook security pop up that stops the automatic synchronization process from running.

I have been researching this issue and I have found a fix but it requires me to buy a commercial third party software library for US$200.

I want to keep the synchronization client as a freeware utility, so I
have created a Micro Pledge project to see if some of this money can be raised from the application users. If there is enough support then I'll buy the license and add this fix in.

The Micro Pledge project is here: http://micropledge.com/projects/toodledosync-outlook-security-fix

For the technially inclined, this web site gives a good sumary of the Outlook security problem and the various fixes. I've chosen the Redemption approach as being the best suited to fix the problem.

Thanks for all your work on this Keith. Given the asset that this sync tool is to Toodledo, have you thought about approaching them for the necessary funds?

Thanks for the suggestion Tony. I am reluctant to ask Toodledo for funds because I'm not even sure if there is any demand for the feature. Using micro pledge seemed to be a safe way to see what sort of demand was out there.

Also I guess it would be nice to keep the tool non-commercial for now. I only get a limited time each week to work on it and I'd feel a lot more pressure to get it 'finished' if I entered into any sort of commercial relationship with the site.

Cheers

Keith
