EX 5.5 folder tree in dig. dashbd

Ron:


I am pretty sure that the routine your are using to get an XML expression of your Exchange Server Folder Tree works fine, and could be used (almost) "as is" to solve the problem you are facing. As I see it, you may not have a "coding" problem, in terms of the wrong code, but a "profile" problem, in terms of using the wrong profile to log into Exchange.

As you know, any typical CDO routine starts with the instantiation of a Session object, with this very same object used to log intothe Exchange Server through the logon method. This method has, among other parameters (most of them optional) the profile name, or an expression that contains details of the profile information used to login. Your logon line is using an explicit or implicit profile which doesn?t have enough rights to expose the entire tree.

I believe that it this "profile" that is preventing you from accomplishing what you expect from this routine. To solve this, you should ask the Exchange Administrator to create a new Exchange profile (user) with enough rights to be able to traverse (navigate) the entire Folder Tree. This profile should adhere to all security policies for Exchange users that are in place at your company, and that may imply some changes to your routine (to accommodate to these additional security issues).

With this profile (user) created and in proper operation, you should change your routine just by changing the logon line and using this profile (explicitly) instead.

In order to fully address all security concerns, you should protect this routine from prying eyes, like converting it into an in-process (DLL) COM service (encapsulate it into a DLL COM object method), and you should include any additional security measures necessary.

Good Luck !!!
