Viewing Email Data in RAD Studio Data Explorer

How to view Email data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for Email.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Email, you gain access to live Email data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Email data. This article will walk through connecting to Email using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Email Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Email data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Email and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Email Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    The User and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid credentials. The Server must be specified to retrieve emails and the SMTPServer must be specified to send emails.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Mailboxes) onto the form.

  7. Select the MailboxesTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Mailboxes data.
