We’re excited to announce that we have released updates to the Exchange 2010 SDKs for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1). Exchange 2010 SP1 introduces many new programmability features that will help you create robust applications. Here is an overview of what has changed for Exchange programmability documentation for this release:

· Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta Web Services SDK – We added documentation in support of the many new features for Exchange Web Services. This includes a new EmptyFolder operation to simplify the deletion of folder content, bulk transfer to support the import/export of information in a mailbox, conversation operations to help manage items in a conversation, and the Inbox rules operations to enable you to programmatically use Inbox rules. We have also made small changes to existing API features

· Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta Transport Agents SDK & Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta Outlook Web App Customization SDK – We have included new documentation for new types and members that were added to the APIs, and updates to existing types and members.

· Exchange 2010 SP1 Beta Backup and Restore SDK – We updated information about running consistency checks on databases in a Database Availability Group (DAG).

Check out the What’s New pages for the SDKs for more details about the exciting changes to your favorite Exchange API.

We hope the new features and documentation help you achieve your organizational goals for Exchange connectivity and interoperability. And while you are reading this, if you’d like to provide input for future Exchange programmability features and improvements, submit your feedback to our very own David Claux on the Exchange Server Development forum.

Happy coding!
