Very cool.  It works right out of the box.  Here is a example of a few
records.  I would like to figure out how to extract the From, Subject, and
OriginalModTime fields and set them properly in the import procedures.  Then
drop the other fields of course:

OriginalModTime:  01/29/2007 03:52:16 PM
From:  CN=John Doe/O=Company
AltFrom:  CN=John Doe/O=Company

An order had the following error:

Invalid or not converted ShipTo ID

The customer's ship to was listed but had checkbox in the New field on the
form.  However, the address already existed in Oracle.  I removed the
check and it processed normally.

Do NOT delete joins setup in Discoverer if they are already used by
reports.  You will not be able to open any reports that used these joins.
However, if you do it accidentally, recreate the join and name it EXACTLY
the same way that it appears in the error message you receive when trying
to open the report.  This will work.
