Exchange Server 2010 Web Services SDK

Exchange Server 2010 provides new and improved web service interfaces that you can use to implement client applications that access and manage Exchange store items. You can use the information in this SDK to create client applications that use the web services that are available in Exchange 2010.

The license terms specified in the License Information topic in this SDK apply to your use of this SDK. Please review it carefully.

The Exchange 2010 Web Services SDK includes the following sections:

Operations related to the following were introduced in Exchange 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2):

Contact-related XML elements have been added.

Operations related to the following were introduced in Exchange 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1):

Exchange 2010 introduces the following important changes that might affect your web services–based applications:

  • Operations related to the following were introduced in Exchange 2010:

    • User configuration

    • Mail tips

    • Message tracking

    • Calendar and contact sharing

    • Room availability

    • Time zones

    • Service configuration

    • Unified messaging

  • A new SOAP-based Autodiscover service has been introduced as an alternative to using the "plain old XML" (POX) Autodiscover service.
