Is there an internal ID associated with each email in Exchange? How to retrieve it?
Posted on 2004-10-05
We've set up a mailbox on the Exchange Server and we use it to hold certain emails that need to be shared and viewed by a group of users. To process the emails in this mailbox, we are planning to write a script to automatically read info like subject, date, to, from each email and save them into a database. Users can view a list of emails from a customer application. Since we'll allow the users to open each email in their local Outlook to view the contents, is there a unique ID associated with each email in Exchange? How do I can the ID? Also how do I open the message from this application? What type of script could do this? Our current Exchange Server is 5.5 and will be upgraded to 2003 in about a year. Thanks.
