RecipientAddress Property

Exchange Server 2003

RecipientAddress Property

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

The RecipientAddress property is an array that specifies the e-mail addresses of each message recipient. The RecipientAddress property is read-only.

Applies To

The RecipientAddress property is a member of the Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry Class.

Instance Path

The RecipientAddress property appears on instances of the \\COMPUTERNAME\ROOT\MicrosoftExchangeV2:Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry class.

MOF Syntax

[read] string RecipientAddress[];

Qualifiers

This property has no qualifiers.

Remarks

The number of elements in the RecipientAddress property array is also provided in the RecipientCount Property. Each element in the RecipientAddress array has a corresponding element in the RecipientStatus Property array.

Selecting Instances Using VBScript

The following example shows how to retrieve a list of Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry instances, and the RecipientAddress property, using the ExecQuery method.

'===============================================================
' Name:      ShowExchange_MessageTrackingEntry_Query_RecipientAddress
' Purpose:   Display each Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry found for the
'            specified Exchange server, and show the Recipient
'            information for each Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry
'            instance.
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
'            intHoursToShow [integer] the number of hours before the
'            present time for which log entries will be shown.
'            intUTCOffset [integer] Local time offset from UTC
' Output:    Displays the RecipientAddress and RecipientStatus of
'            each recipient for each Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry.
'
'===============================================================
' IMPORTANT: This script may take a very long time to execute when run
'            on a heavily used Exchange server, or when a very long
'            intHoursToShow is given. This script uses the ExecQuery
'            programming style, and gives a lower limit to the
'            TimeLogged property. It is recommended that applications
'            specify lower and upper bounds for the TimeLogged
'            property to improve performance.

VBScript Example

The following example shows how to retrieve a list of Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry instances, and how to retrieve the RecipientAddress property.

'===============================================================
' Name:      ShowExchange_MessageTrackingEntry_RecipientAddress
' Purpose:   Display each Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry found for the
'            specified Exchange server, and show the RecipientAddress
'            and RecipientStatus properties for each
'            Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry instance.
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the KeyID of each Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry
'            and the RecipientAddress and RecipientStatus properties.
'
'===============================================================
' IMPORTANT: This script may take a very long time to execute when run
'            on a heavily used Exchange server, because the script
'            lists information about all message transfers recorded
'            in the message tracking logs. The GetInstances style
'            of access used in this script causes the WMI provider
'            to enumerate all log entries. To improve the performance
'            of scripts using Exchange_MessageTrackingEntry instances,
'            it is recommended you use WMI ExecQuery, and restrict
'            the results range with the TimeLogged property.
