Hello

I am working on some code to import Outlook appointments into org-mode.  It will use the Wsh Repl (http://www.emacswiki.org/emacs-en/WshRepl) to talk to the Windows Scripting Host to connect to outlook to retrieve the meetings.

So far it is going well, but I have a question:

I plan on storing the outlook meeting entry IDs in the created tasks inside of org, this way I can be sure not to re-create any previously imported meetings.  Is this best stored as a property? Is there already an established ID property I can use?  (FYI, the outlook EntryID is a 140 (!) digit hex number.)

Thanks!

Org handles an ID property which can be an arbitrary string, but it  
must be unique.
So you could directly use these.

P.S. Why they felt compelled to make an ID 140 hex digits is beyond me.
16^140 is  
3773962424821541352241554580988268890916921220416440428376206300245624162392148852086126725177658767541468375030763844899770584629924792632561434251432696043649395326976
which is about 4 times 10^168, which is 100 million times the number  
of particles in the universe squared, so 100 million times the number  
of possible particle-particle pairings across the entire universe.   
Only very blown-up egos will think they'll ever get this many emails  
or tasks.  Even though, I know some who might be thinking just  
that.... :-)
