When processing a GetStreamingEvents request, the Client Access server performs the following steps:

  1. The SubscriptionId of the request is confirmed to be a valid subscription that is hosted on the Client Access server. If it is not, the GetStreamingEvents call fails.

  2. The SMTP address of the authenticated user for the request is validated to have impersonation rights. If they do not, the GetStreamingEvents request fails.

  3. The subscription queue is queried for events that are waiting to be sent to the client. If the queue is not empty, the first 50 events from the queue are pulled from the queue and encoded into a notification.

  4. If no events are found in the queue, a StatusEvent is generated and encoded into a notification response.

  5. The notification response is returned to the client.

  6. The events that are included in the notification are removed from the subscription queue and the Client Access server–local last watermark for the subscription is set to the watermark of the last event that is returned.

  7. The timeout timer for the subscription is reset.
