Programatically retrieve Exchange 2003 mailbox items to a PST RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I am wondering what is the best way to do the following, but I struggle to find a solution:

    - Access a mailbox in Exchange 2003

    - Enumerate items based on a size filter (bigger than)

    - Retrieve those items either to PST (preferred) or to .msg

    - Export it either to PST or to .msg

    I have tried to found a solution on the web, but there are a lot of information aboit this topic, but I could not find anything that fits what I need.

    Any idea????'

    Thanks in advance!!!!

  • PST and MSG are both Office(Outlook) file formats (eg a msg file is a compound OLE document) so to export a mailbox or mailbox items to a PST file (or as separate MSG files) programmatically you need to use MAPI either extended Mapi or you could use the Outlook OOM or possibly a third party library like Redemption http://www.dimastr.com/redemption/home.htm
