    WebDAV Sample(s): How to get item property values from Exchange Store

    • 1 Comments

    Please find this wonderful article, which talks about "How to get item property values using WebDAV". This article has good example's in VB.Net, C#.Net, C++.Net and VBScript. 

    It talks about, how you can construct the XML body of a WebDAV PROPFIND Method manually. The request is for the displayname Field for a folder. After the request has been constructed, the code passes the XML string to an XMLHTTP Component Object Model (COM) object and sends the PROPFIND Method request to the server.

    Outlook Mobile Service makes it easier to use both these media and is fully integrated with Outlook. With Outlook Mobile Service, composing and sending a text or multimedia message is now as quick and easy as creating and sending an e-mail message. After the message is sent, you can see it in the Sent Items folder in your Inbox.

    For more details, read this wonderful article. It describes about the advantages, how it works and its features.

    SMTP Commands Part # 2 - Using Telnet on port 25 to test SMTP communication

    • 1 Comments

    Please find the following steps and SMTP commands to test SMTP communication using Telnet on Port 25.

    1.                   At a command prompt, type telnet, and then press ENTER. This command opens the Telnet session.

    2.                   Type set localecho and then press ENTER. This optional command lets you view the characters as you type them. This setting may be required for some SMTP servers.

    3.                   Type set logfile <filename>. This optional command enables logging of the Telnet session to the specified log file. If you only specify a file name, the location of the log file is the current working directory. If you specify a path and a file name, the path must be local to the computer. Both the path and the file name that you specify must be entered in the Microsoft DOS 8.3 format. The path that you specify must already exist. If you specify a log file that doesn't exist, it will be created for you.

    4.                   Type open mail1.fabrikam.com 25 and then press ENTER.

    5.                   Type EHLO contoso.com and then press ENTER.

    6.                   Type MAIL FROM:chris@contoso.com and then press ENTER.

    7.                   Type RCPT TO:kate@fabrikam.com NOTIFY=success,failure and then press ENTER. The optional NOTIFY command defines the particular delivery status notification (DSN) messages that the destination SMTP server must provide to the sender. DSN messages are defined in RFC 1891. In this case, you are requesting a DSN message for successful or failed message delivery.

    8.                   Type DATA and then press ENTER. You will receive a response that resembles the following

    354 Start mail input; end with <CLRF>.<CLRF>

    9.                   Type Subject: Test Sampleand then press ENTER.

    10.               Press ENTER. RFC 2822 requires a blank line between the Subject: header field and the message body.

    11.               Type This is a test message and then press ENTER.

    12.               Press ENTER, type a period ( . ) and then press ENTER. You will receive a response that resembles the following:

    250 2.6.0 <GUID> Queued mail for delivery

    13.               To disconnect from the destination SMTP server, type QUIT and then press ENTER. You will receive a response that resembles the following:

    221 2.0.0 Service closing transmission channel

    14.               To close the Telnet session, type quit and then press ENTER.

    SMTP Commands Part # 1- List of SMTP Commands

    • 2 Comments

    Please find the list of SMTP commands and its definitions, which can be used on multiple places. For example it can be used to check event SMTP sinks by sending mails.

    SMTP commands

    SMTP command

    Command function

    HELO

    Sent by a client to identify itself, usually with a domain name.

    EHLO

    Enables the server to identify its support for Extended Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (ESMTP) commands.

    MAIL FROM

    Identifies the sender of the message; used in the form MAIL FROM:.

    RCPT TO

    Identifies the message recipients; used in the form RCPT TO:.

    TURN

    Allows the client and server to switch roles and send mail in the reverse direction without having to establish a new connection.

    ATRN

    The ATRN (Authenticated TURN) command optionally takes one or more domains as a parameter. The ATRN command must be rejected if the session has not been authenticated.

    SIZE

    Provides a mechanism by which the SMTP server can indicate the maximum size message supported. Compliant servers must provide size extensions to indicate the maximum size message that can be accepted. Clients should not send messages that are larger than the size indicated by the server.

    ETRN

    An extension of SMTP. ETRN is sent by an SMTP server to request that another server send any e-mail messages that it has.

    PIPELINING

    Provides the ability to send a stream of commands without waiting for a response after each command.

    CHUNKING

    An ESMTP command that replaces the DATA command. So that the SMTP host does not have to continuously scan for the end of the data, this command sends a BDAT command with an argument that contains the total number of bytes in a message. The receiving server counts the bytes in the message and, when the message size equals the value sent by the BDAT command, the server assumes it has received all of the message data.

    DATA

    Sent by a client to initiate the transfer of message content.

    DSN

    An ESMTP command that enables delivery status notifications.

    RSET

    Nullifies the entire message transaction and resets the buffer.

    VRFY

    Verifies that a mailbox is available for message delivery; for example, vrfy ted verifies that a mailbox for Ted resides on the local server. This command is off by default in Exchange implementations.

    HELP

    Returns a list of commands that are supported by the SMTP service.

    QUIT

    Terminates the session.

    The following table lists the extended SMTP commands that Exchange makes available to the SMTP service.

    Extended SMTP commands

    Extended SMTP command

    Command function

    X-EXPS GSSAPI

    A method that is used by Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 and Exchange 2000 Server servers to authenticate.

    X-EXPS=LOGIN

    A method that is used by Exchange 2000 and Exchange 2003 servers to authenticate.

    X-EXCH50

    Provides the ability to propagate message properties during server-to-server communication.

    X-LINK2STATE

    Adds support for link state routing in Exchange.

    Offline Address Book - Birds eye-view

    • 1 Comments

    What is an Offline Address Book?

    An offline address book is a container that stores a collection of offline address lists. Administrators configure available offline address books, and Outlook users can choose which offline address lists they want to download.

    What is an Offline address list?   

    An offline address list is a set of address lists in files that are created and stored on an offline address list server. Users who work offline can connect to an Exchange Server computer and download offline address lists to obtain information about other users in the organization. When you create an offline address book, the specified address lists are converted to a separate set of files and stored in a public folder. When users download the offline address book, this data file is used as the source of information. Outlook 2003 uses offline address book to provide offline access to directory information from global address list (GAL) and from other address lists.

    • Exchange generates new offline address book files & places them in a special public folder, known as a system folder, for Outlook to download.
    • Offline address book files are compressed before they are added to offline address book system folders so that the download to Outlook is minimal.
    • Outlook is scheduled to check periodically for new offline address book files in these system folders, and download the required files.
    • Offline address books typically contain at least one address list that represents the global address list (GAL).
    • Users who are working offline can use this global address list with Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) e-mail clients.

    How it's getting created?

    • Several Exchange Server components work with Active Directory to generate and maintain offline address books.
    • After an offline address book has been created
      • either automatically by Exchange Setup
      • or manually by an administrator using Exchange System Manager
      • Exchange Server and Active Directory work together to maintain the offline address book, keeping it synchronized with changes that may be made in the directory.

    Where it will be displayed?

    • System folders can be displayed in Exchange System Manager, enabling an administrator to view the files that make up the offline address book

    What will be the size of Offline address book? 

    • Offline address book sizes can vary from a few megabytes to a few hundred megabytes. (It depends on various factors)

    Note: Address book size refers to the size of the compressed offline address book files on the Exchange Server, and not the uncompressed, expanded file size for the offline address book files on the Outlook client.

    Monitoring Event sink # 15 - Check event registration and its item properties

    • 1 Comments

    Whenever if we work with event sink, we need to check the event registration, what're the associated items, its item properties and its importance (whether it is required or not)...

    Event Registration 

    To receive event notifications, you must register with Exchange by creating and saving event registration items.

    Event Registration items 

    An item becomes an event registration item when you set the content class of the item to urn:content-class:storeeventreg.

    Note: For more information, we can get more details from the Content Classes article.

    The following table defines the event properties for an event registration item http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/events/ namespace:

    Property

    Required?

    Use

    Criteria Field No A Structured Query Language (SQL) Where clause that specifies the conditions that will cause the event to fire.
    Enabled Field No A Boolean value that indicates if an event registration is enabled.
    EventMethod Field Yes Defines which event or events cause notification.
    MatchScope Field No Defines where the event will fire relative to where it is saved.
    Priority Field No The priority of the event. See Event Notification Priority.
    ScriptUrl Field* Yes The name of the script if the event is a script being run by The Script Host Sink.
    SinkClass Field Yes The class identifier (CLSID) or progID of the object that contains the event sink.
    TimerExpiryTime Field** No The time to end an OnTimer event.
    TimerInterval Field** Yes The interval, in minutes, between OnTimer event notifications.
    TimerStartTime Field** Yes The time at which Microsoft® Exchange begins notifying event sinks of the OnTimer event.

    * This field is required only if you use a script to handle the event.
    ** This field is used only for the OnTimer event.

    Monitoring Event Sink # 14 - Advanced Queuing Engine and SMTP sinks

    • 0 Comments

    Advanced Queuing Engine - SMTP Architecture

    The advanced queuing engine is a key component in Exchange 2003 message handling, because all messages must pass through this engine, even when sender and recipient are located on the same server running Exchange Server 2003. This enables Exchange Server 2003 transport components to process every message. No e-mail message can bypass the transport subsystem.

     Advanced Queuing Engine - Events

    Please find this article, which illustrates, the advanced queuing engine "how it" acts as an information controller or dispatcher of system, store, and transport events to process each message after it reaches the SMTP transport subsystem.

    The above engine dispatches the following events:

    1. OnSubmission
    2. OnPreCategorize
    3. OnCategorize
    4. OnPostCategorize
    5. OnGetMessageRouter
    6. OnMsgTrackLog
    7. OnDnsResolveRecord
    8. OnMaxMsgSize
    9. Storedriver

    Monitoring event sink # 13 - Best practices for Event sink registration

    • 1 Comments

    Event sink registration - Best practices

    It's must to know when we try to register the event sink in Excahge environment.

    The following guidelines are helpful when you create event registration items:

    • The scope of an event sink is restricted to a single store.
    • Event registration items are automatically hidden when saved.
    • To be instantiated by Exchange, event sinks in a dynamic-link library (DLL) must have a surrogate host defined.
    • Wrapping the DLL in a COM+ Application assigns the surrogate host automatically.

    Monitoring Event Sink # 12 - Event Sinks firing order

    • 0 Comments
    "Which order the event sinks are getting fired" ?
     
    This is a common question asked by customers, whenever we work event sink related cases. 
    • Take this small example example, when registering for synchronous event notifications, you can set a priority.
    • It specifies when the notification will occur relative to the other event registrations waiting on the same event.  
    Registration Priority: Here we need to understand this registration priority

    The registration priority can have any value within the ranges shown in the following table:

    Priority Decimal value Hexadecimal value
    Highest (first to be notified) 0 0
    Default 65535 0x0000ffff
    Lowest (last to be notified) 2147483647 0x7fffffff

    Configure Public folder permissions

    Please find the lists of management tasks that you can perform to configure and maintain public folder permissions:

    • How to Add Permissions for Client Users to Access Public Folder Content
      You can use the Add-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet or the AddUsersToPFRecursive.ps1 user management script to specify the permissions for the client user. You can create the access rights by using either the predefined permission roles or by creating custom access rights.
    • How to Remove or Replace Public Folder Client Permissions
      You can use the Remove-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet or the RemoveUserFromPFRecursive.ps1 script to remove permissions for the client user. You can remove access rights by using either the predefined permission roles or by using the access rights.
      You can use the ReplaceUserWithUserOnPFRecursive.ps1 and ReplaceUserPermissionOnPFRecursive.ps1 scripts to replace client permissions on a public folder.

    • How to View Public Folder Client Permissions Settings
      You can use the Get-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet to view the client access rights associated with a public folder.
    • How to Grant the Send As Permission for a Mail-Enabled Public Folder
      You can use Send As permissions to configure a mail-enabled public folder so that users other than the public folder owner can use the mail-enabled public folder to send messages.
      The Send As permission is not granted until after replication has occurred. Replication times depend on your Microsoft Exchange and network configuration.
    • How to Add Administrative Permissions for Users to Access Public Folders
      You can use the Add-PublicFolderAdministratorPermission cmdlet, the Add-ExchangeAdministrator cmdlet, or the Add Exchange Administrator wizard to grant administrative rights for a user to access a public folder or public folder hierarchy.
    • How to Remove Public Folder Administrative Permissions
      You can use the Remove-PublicFolderAdministratorPermission cmdlet, the Remove-ExchangeAdministrator cmdlet, or the Add Exchange Administrator wizard to remove administrative access rights from a user for a public folder or public folder hierarchy.
    • How to View Public Folder Administrative Permission Settings
      You can use the Get-PublicFolderAdministratorPermission cmdlet, the Get-ExchangeAdministrator cmdlet, or the Organization Configuration node to view the administrative rights that are associated with a public folder or public folder hierarchy.

    Monitoring Event Sink # 11 - Registering for Store-Wide Events

    • 2 Comments
    Registering for Store-Wide Events

    Global events can only be registered in the following folders:

    For private mailbox stores:

    file://./backofficestorage/ADMIN/%userdnsdomain%/MBX/SystemMailbox{GUID}/Storeevents/GlobalEvents

    For public folders:

    file://./backofficestorage/ADMIN/%userdnsdomain%/Public Folders/Non_ipm_subtree/StoreEvents{GUID}/GlobalEvents

    Access Global Schema: 

    To access the global schema of an application or a public store, use The ##SCHEMAURI## Macro.

    Need to check: 

    • Global events can be registered only by an Administrator, a member of Domain Administrators group, or users in the Exchange Administrators role.
    • It is not enough to be a member of the Administrators group or the Exchange Server group.
    • To make a user an Exchange Administrator, use the Exchange Administration Delegation Wizard in the Exchange Management console.

    Source Code:

    The following code demonstrates how to register for a private store-wide event:

    dim igetSG
    dim regURL
    dim WshShell
    dim Return

    set igetSG=CreateObject("Exoledb.StoreGuidFromUrl.1")
    'Get the GUID for the registration process
    guid = igetSG.StoreGuidFromUrl("file://./backofficestorage/" + Anystoreitem)
    'Anystoreitem is just that. Any store item in the store will get you the store url. It might be something like: "theserver.example.com/MBX/user1/inbox"

    'Build the registration URL (using "theserver.example.com")
    regURL = "file://./backofficestorage/ADMIN/theserver.example.com/MBX/SystemMailbox" & guid & "/StoreEvents/GlobalEvents/my_event"

    set WshShell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    Return = WshShell.Run ("cscript c:\regevent.vbs add onsyncsave mysink.sink " & regURL & " -m ANY", 4 , TRUE)

    WScript.Echo Return

    Note:
    •   Server-wide events are not supported.
    •  Global events must be synchronous.
    • It is not possible register an asynchronous event globally.

    Monitoring Event Sink # 10 - How to Register Store Event Sink

    • 1 Comments

    Registering Store Event Sink - Three Sample attached

    Example 1: The above command example is to register a specific mailbox. To register event sinks to a specific store with the regevent.vbs script, here is an example:

    cscript regevent.vbs add OnSyncSave test.sink "file://./backofficestorage/contoso.com/MBX/SystemMailbox{9ADEA9EA-3924-401F-9C70-0 3B6B7378C9D}/StoreEvents/GlobalEvents/testsink" -m deep

    In the above command, the event sink is actually registered to the system mailbox named SystemMailbox{GUID} in the mailbox store.

    To determine the GUID:

    1. In the Exchange System Manager, find the mailbox store that you want to register the event sink to.
    2. Select the "Mailboxes" node under the mailbox store to see the list of its' mailboxes. You will see a mailbox called "SystemMailbox{GUID}." The GUID is the GUID you want.

    Example 2 :The following example uses the RegEvent script to register an OnSyncSave event to a mailbox:

    cscript regevent.vbs add OnSyncSave ExOleDB.ScriptEventSink.1 "file://./backofficestorage/contoso.com/user1/inbox/eventsink1" -m deep -file "c:\script1.vbs"

    Example 3: The following example uses the regevent script to register an OnSave and OnDelete event to the public folder named folder1 under the Public Folders tree:

    cscript regevent.vbs add "OnSave;OnDelete" ExOleDB.ScriptEventSink.1 "file://./backofficestorage/contoso.com/Public Folders/folder1/testsink" -m deep -file "c:\vbscript1.vbs"
