Get mail from Exchange Server 5.5

P: n/a
Hi all,

I would like to retrieve mail from a mail server (Exchange Server 5.5), do
some operations and then delete email.

I have try using Outlook to retrieve mail items, it works but extremely slow
(as my mail box is very very large, around 10000 mails need to process per
day)

Any suggestions?

Thx in advance

You could use a POP3 control(or write one of your own), and download mails from your exchange server to your program, without using Outlook.

Norton,
Have you seriously considered that this may actually be better asked in an
Exchange Server newsgroup?

As VB.NET itself does not have anything per se to do with reading 10000
emails from Exchange Server.

Or are you really asking how to read 10000 emails with VB.NET from Exchange
Server?

The following site provides a plethora of articles on using Outlook with
VB.NET. I would recommend Outlook for client side code.

http://www.microeye.com/resources/res_outlookvsnet.htm

For a discussion on selecting development technologies for Exchange Server,
start here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...hsel_intro.asp

I would recommend one of the Exchange Server technologies for server side
code.

Hope this helps
