Retrieve calendar Item from MailBox of Microsoft exchange server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     I need to create a client application in C++ for retrieving calendar items from MailBox of Microsoft exchange server 2010. Which technology to use MAPI or Exchange web service to retrieve calendar items from Microsoft exchange server 2010? Is there any other better way for retrieving calendar items from Microsoft exchange server 2010 apart from MAPI or Exchange web service.

     Thanks in Advance.

  • You can use either.

    From managed code, EWS is the only viable solution. And I think it's much simpler to use. But then, I don't know how difficult it's from C++ to call WebServices.

    Nice thing about EWS is that you practically get something like an Outlook object model.  Another option would be Outlook Redemption (, a COM based wrapper around MAPI.
     Kind regards,
