Types of Client Application

Message client applications use the Messaging Framework architecture and installed MTMs to access messaging functionality.

Message client applications can be of various types, including:

  • Simple message-aware applications: These applications provide some messaging functionality, such as sending documents. The SendAs interface provides a simple messaging interface for use by such applications.

  • Inter-process communication applications: These applications use messaging to exchange data (for example with a server), without the user explicitly creating or sending messages.

  • Full-featured client applications: These applications provide complete access to messaging functionality.
