Connect to Email Data in DBArtisan

Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure Email data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for Email seamlessly integrates Email data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access Email data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for Email in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate Email Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

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.

You can then follow the steps below to register Email data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to Email data. Email entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with Email data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the Email API.
