Exchange GAL searching RRS feed

  • Question

  • after reading through numerous blogs, when searching exchange GAL via activesync - it is hard-wired to return a preset fields. 

    I currently need to access to the notes field and have hit a brick wall. 

    Is it possible to fetch the notes field also?

  • Hi emickey1, the ActiveSync protocol does not support the retrieval of the notes field for GAL entries. This is verifiable by reviewing the following sections.

     

    MS-ASCMD section 6.15 contains the XML schema for the GAL namespace and does not include the notes field. If the notes field was supported in Search results it would be defined here.

     

    MS-ASWBXML section 2.1.2.1.17 contains the list of tag/token pairs supported by the GAL codepage and does not include the notes field. If the notes field was supported anywhere in the ActiveSync protocol there would be a tag/token pair defined for it here.
