Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SDK June 2003

The first edition of the SDK for Exchange Server 2003 is here! We've updated
and added material and samples to help you create better Exchange
applications. This SDK covers the commercially released version of Exchange,
which will be widely available later this year. Highlights in this release
of the Exchange Server 2003 SDK include:

-         Technology Evaluation documentation and spreadsheet, enabling you
to compare the technologies available for programmatic access and control of
Exchange.

-         Active Directory Classes and Properties, providing you with
information about the changes that Exchange Server 2003 makes to the Active
Directory schema, and what the properties control.

-         Create Mailbox Before User Logon sample applications, showing how
to create a new user in Active Directory and create the mailbox in an
Exchange store before the user has logged on.

-         WebDAV programming samples for sending a message, retrieving a
list of folders, and working with item-level locks.

-         Exchange Server 2003 Windows Management Instrumentation classes,
providing documentation and sample code for the enhanced WMI providers
included with Exchange Server 2003.

-         Task Wizard XML log file viewer sample, enabling you to more
easily review the information output by the Exchange 2003 Task Wizard. A
sample XSLT style sheet and Hypertext application are provided.

SDK at:

Because Exchange Server 2003 does not include Instant Messaging and the
Conference Technology Provider, those sections are not included in the
Exchange Server 2003 SDK. In addition, the Sample Gateway is not supported
on Exchange Server 2003. However, the Sample Gateway continues to be
supported for use with Exchange 2000 Server. Information about Exchange
Instant Messaging, Conference Technology Provider, and the Sample Gateway is
still available in the Exchange 2000 Server SDK.
