Exchange 2010 Public Folders

My company has had a custom built VB6 event sync application that would create Public Folders on our Exchange server. Now that we are moving to Exchange 2010 we would like to create a .NET-based app that did the same things as the legacy app but which does not have to be installed on the Exchange server itself. We were wondering if the Aspose Network .NET component could accomplish this.

The legacy app works as such:
1. It watches a specific mailbox on Exchange, which gets populated with specially formatted emails via a trigger in SQL Server.
2. The subject line of the email is parsed (Project No, Project Manager, etc)
3. The public folder gets created.
4. The folder is "mail enabled"
5. The folder permissions are set for the Project Manager noted in the subject line.
6. An email is sent alerting the Project Manager of the new folder.
7. The email gets deleted from the mailbox.



Hi Mark,

Thank you for inquiry.

Aspose.Network for .NET component does not need to be installed on Exchange Server. It can access the Exchange Server from a remote location (LAN or Internet) using IP address or full URL. For examples, please visit this page.

  1. You can write a method that gets executed after a specified interval of time. In that method, you can check the inbox for list of messages.
  2. From the list, you can easily check the subject and perform some action based on condition.
  3. Not available. I have added a new feature request (ID: 28016) to create public folders on Exchange Server 2010.
  4. See pt 3
  5. Could you please tell us some more details about it? The public folders are accessible by anyone. I think there is no need to set permissions.
  6. This can be done if account name of the project manager is included in the subject or body of the message in some format e.g. project-manager: account-name@mydomain.com. You can look for this string and then get the account name/email address. For sending email using Exchange Server, please refer to this page.
  7. For deleting the email from mailbox, please see the code sample and documentation at this page.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 28016 ) have been fixed in [this update](http://www.aspose.com/community/files/51/.net-components/aspose.network-for-.net/entry313463.aspx).
