Supporting Messaging Clients

HTTP Support

HTTP is the underlying protocol used by the World Wide Web. HTTP defines how messages are formatted and transmitted, and what actions Web servers and browsers take in response to various commands. Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is an extension to the HTTP version 1.1 protocol. The WebDAV protocol allows an HTTP client to retrieve and manipulate information in Information Store.

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server supports HTTP and WebDAV to provide more functionality for general data access.

Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server provides support for WebDAV through HTTP virtual servers. The folder contents the HTTP virtual server displays are converted to Web pages and sent to a user's browser by Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS).
