Clients use this protocol to retrieve and consume OAB data files that have the Offline Address Book (OAB) Format and Schema structure, as described in [MS-OXOAB].

Clients that use this protocol rely on the Store Object Protocol, as described in [MS-OXCSTOR], to obtain the ID of the OAB data folder of the local site. The ID is retrieved from the server when it logs on to the public folder by using RopLogon property ([MS-OXCROPS] section
