Exchange Server - automated URL post on email receipt

Posted on 2014-07-26

I am in the process of converting from Smarter Mail to Exchange Server and I am not sure where to find the following functionality in Exchange Server.  In SmarterMail I use "events" to post certain email information to a URL whenever an inbound email is received and then my web server parses the post responds accordingly.

I am looking for a way to post from address, to address, subject and body to a URL whenever an inbound email is received on my exchange server.  I have been searching and reading exchange references but I am not even sure what this functionality would be called or if it exists.  

Thanks!

Rob

To my knowledge, and I've been running Smartmail for 5 years, the Event feature does not post to a url, nor does it have the option to send a url in a notification.

Are you using the command line feature with a 3rd party tool and want to replicate that?

Could you please clarify?

Yes I am using command line to post to the URL.  I have a batch file that handles the URL posting.

Exchange doesn't have a built in function to run batch/executables.  What you need to do is program your own Transport Agent.  See the following link:
