Vb.NET sample for getting the number of Unread messages from an inbox using Impersonation with Exchange Web Services

Although im not a great user of VB any more there does seem to be a bit of a dirth of samples for those people who haven't made the leap to using C#. So here's something that might fill the void for a few people I've put a donwload of this code here the code itself looks like Imports ewsvbsamp.ews Imports System.Net Imports System.Net.Security Imports System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates Module Module1 Sub Main() Console.WriteLine(GetUnreadEmailCount("")) End Sub Public Function GetUnreadEmailCount(ByVal emailaddress As String) As Integer Dim UnreadCount As Integer = 0 ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = New RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(AddressOf ValidateCertificate) Dim esb As New ExchangeServiceBinding esb.RequestServerVersionValue = New RequestServerVersion esb.RequestServerVersionValue.Version = ExchangeVersionType.Exchange2007_SP1 esb.Crede

WebService to release Quarantined messages in Exchange 2007

This post follows on from the quarantine digest message post last month and looks at the challeges around resubmitting a Quarantined message.

The previous version just looked at the Mailbox Rights and Send AS/Receive AS rights. This new version using Exchange Web Services looks at firstly the rights on the shared folders in a mailbox (eg Root,calendar,inbox,notes,task,journal) and also the Outlook Delegates and the rights assigned to the delegates such as Private Items access and Meeting recipients as well as all the other permissions it did previously. Sorry i haven't got the snapshot functionality done yet which i think i promised before but... The cool thing is this script now lets us answer a bunch of new questions such as Which users have given acess to paricular folders in their Mailbox to other people(including the default user which may mean the have unwillingly delegated access to everyone). And we ca
