Is it possible to integrate en email client with TestComplete.
If yes, how can it be done?
I want to test the email notifications received as part of the web based application, which I am testing.
The best way I've found was using CDO objects and Outlook. (easier via smtp account, I found using outlook profiles problematic)
Other ways are automating via GUI your particular email client of choice.
If your email server supports SOAP calls, you can use SOAP, which is what we are currently doing.

I recommend that you also take a look at the sample script demonstrating how to work with Outlook from TestComplete. Please see the "MSOffice" section of the "Script Samples" help topic for more information on the sample.
