create exchange public folder contact

P: n/a
hi everyone,

i hope you might help me on this one. i need to create a contact in a
exchange public folder using dotnet (vb or c#) and exchange 2003, without
using outlook object model. i'm searching for a few hours and can't find a
clear example on how to do it. i've already seen code blocks using webdav,
directory services, but always related with creating active directory users
or mail enabling users, not exactly what i'm looking for.

TIA

Try perhaps around :

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...EXCHG.65).aspx (Creating
Folders (WebDAV) )

I'm not sure which kind of folders it creates but my guess would be just
that it depends on the location and the managed code sample seems to create
in the /public folder so I guess this would be this...

Also it lloks like this is really much more easier to work with Exchange
2007 as it seems to expose much of it using webservices...

I made a quikc search and it loks like Exchange 2003 SP2 brings support for
web services whihc could be much easier depending on the extend to which
yo'ull use webdav.

Finally you should have also third party librairies that are already
construction webdev requests for you...

Good luck.

Nope, no web services in SP2...

IMO you'll cry when seeing how the plumbing is done for you with Exchange
2007 :

Have a look at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313119 this says 2000 but
will work fine one 2003

Hi,

thank you all for your responses.

using http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...EXCHG.65).aspx i was
able to create folders in exchange. but i need to create contacts inside a
public folder; not the folder itself. with
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313119 i'm getting error 400 - bad request.
however, looks like the code creates a contact in administrator's contacts
(string sUri =
"http://ExchServer/Exchange/Administrator/Contacts/JoLynnDobney.eml";). is
this true?

TIA

You need to change that URL to the folder you want to create the contact in
eg if you wanted to create contacts in a public contacts folder then you
would use "https://servername/public/contactsfolder/" the JoLynnDobney.eml
section of the URL you need to create yourself this needs to be a unique
value for each object in the folder. 400 errors generally point to problems
with malformed XML in the request you sending
