The information in this specification is applicable to the following Microsoft products or supplemental software. References to product versions include released service packs.

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007

  • Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003

  • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007

  • Microsoft Outlook 2010

Exceptions, if any, are noted below. If a service pack or Quick Fix Engineering (QFE) number appears with the product version, behavior changed in that service pack or QFE. The new behavior also applies to subsequent service packs of the product unless otherwise specified. If a product edition appears with the product version, behavior is different in that product edition.

Unless otherwise specified, any statement of optional behavior in this specification that is prescribed using the terms SHOULD or SHOULD NOT implies product behavior in accordance with the SHOULD or SHOULD NOT prescription. Unless otherwise specified, the term MAY implies that the product does not follow the prescription.

<1> Section 2.2.1:  Exchange 2003 supports public folders by default, but public folders have to be configured explicitly on Exchange 2007 or Exchange 2010.

<2> Section 2.2.1.4: Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a Web Distribution Point (WDP), thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<3> Section 2.2.1.5: Office Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a WDP, thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<4> Section 2.2.2.1.2.2: Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a WDP, thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<5> Section 2.2.2.1.3.2: Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a WDP, thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<6> Section 2.2.3.1.2.2: Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a WDP, thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<7> Section 2.2.3.1.3.2: Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 download the OAB by using a WDP, thus bypassing the use of public folders so that this property will not be sent over the wire.

<8> Section 3.1: Exchange 2003, Exchange 2007, and Exchange 2010 automatically remove messages that have been stored for 30 days and not modified during that time.

<9> Section 3.2: Office Outlook 2003 does not use the OAB Retrieval Protocol as specified in [MS-OXWOAB]. Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 examine the rgwServerVersion value (as specified in [MS-OXCRPC] section 3.1.4.1) that is returned by the EcDoConnectEx method (as specified in [MS-OXCRPC] section 3.1.4.1) to determine which protocol to use. If the second byte contains a value that is greater than or equal to 8, Office Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010 use the Autodiscover HTTP Service Protocol (as specified in [MS-OXDISCO]), which will direct the client to use the OAB Retrieval Protocol or the OAB Public Folder Retrieval Protocol. If the second byte is less than 8, the client uses the OAB Public Folder Retrieval Protocol.
