3.2.1 Abstract Data Model
This section describes a conceptual model of possible data organization that an implementation maintains to participate in this protocol. The described organization is provided to facilitate the explanation of how the protocol behaves. This document does not mandate that implementations adhere to this model as long as their external behavior is consistent with that described in this document.
Any implementation requires a published Autodiscover server URI. This enables clients to find servers by using the Autodiscover service.
