Re: Where to find the IPD file format definition?

To: H3llGhost ... I have been writing programs using the IPD as input for about three years. I have a thorough understanding of the IPD structure and format. I also have a good knowledge of the Address Book, Calendar, SMS Messages, Memos, Tasks, Phone Call Logs, and PIN Messages databases content. If you want to contact me regarding this, please send me a Private Message. Thanks ...... Mike
