Not that I am aware of. It is a propriety database that only has access via MAPI.

You may have closed this a bit quickly, you should wait for more responses.

Using ColdFusion you can query certian info using CFLDAP and in CF8 there are new Exchange tags for doing this.

LDAP isn't exactly Exchange. That is the domain and is easily queried.
There are no interfaces for Exchange - ODBC or anything like that. The only interfaces are MAPI and the backup API.

That is not correct, exchange works of AD, LDAP will allow you to query that, so if you wanted user info you can do it.

Also, there are a lot of direct Exchange intergration in CF8, see

Sorry to be picky, but Exchange is NOT LDAP. Exchange is a database which uses information stored in Active Directory. You can query AD via LDAP without Exchange. However as the user hasn't said what they wanted to do it is a moot point.

Simon,

I agree that the user hasn't specified what they want to get, and it may well be that what they want to get is not possible. But I wanted to let them know that you can get some of this information using ColdFusion which was one of the posted topic areas so I assume they have this.

Hi,

As far as I'm aware there is an OLEDB provider for Exchange. It's slightly different in it's syntax and I've never tried programming anything with it but it may be worth looking at.

Do a google search for "exchange" and "OLEDB" - pretty good place to start.

Hope that helps
