More information

The following Visual C++ code sample uses the HTTPRequest object to send a COPY request to the Exchange server. This sample requires Msxml.dll version 2.0 or later.

To run this sample, follow these steps:
  1. Under Public folders, create two new folders and name them "Testfolder1" and "Testfolder2".
  2. In Testfolder1, create a mail item with the subject "test".
  3. In Visual C++, create a new Win32 console application and name it "Mysample".
  4. Replace the code in the Mysample.cpp file with the following code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    //TODO: Change the path here if your Msxml.dll file is in a different location.
    
    #import "c:\winnt\system32\msxml.dll"
    using namespace MSXML;
    
    //To  use MSXML 6.0 import the dll msxml6.dll instead of msxml.dll as follows 
    // #import "c:\winnt\system32\msxml6.dll"
    // using namespace MSXML2;
    
    int main(int argc, char* argv[])
    {
       CoInitialize(NULL);
       try
       {
             //TODO: Change the line below to reflect your server.
       bstr_t yourServerName = "YourServerName";
    
       bstr_t sSourceUrl = "http://" + yourServerName +
          "/public/Testfolder1/test.eml";
       bstr_t sDestUrl = "http://" + yourServerName +
          "/public/Testfolder2/test.eml";
       bstr_t sMethod = "COPY";
             
       //TODO: Change the 2 lines below to reflect your user name and password.
       _variant_t vUser = L"YourDomainName\\User1";
       _variant_t vPassword = L"password";
      
    
       // To use MSXML 6.0 use the following declaration and creation of pXMLHttpReq
       // IXMLHTTPRequestPtr pXMLHttpReq= NULL;
       // HRESULT hr=pXMLHttpReq.CreateInstance("Msxml2.XMLHTTP.6.0");
    
           
       MSXML::IXMLHttpRequest* pXMLHttpReq=NULL;     
       HRESULT hr = ::CoCreateInstance(__uuidof(XMLHTTPRequest), 
          NULL, 
          CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, 
          __uuidof(IXMLHttpRequest), 
          LPVOID*)&pXMLHttpReq);
        
    
       if (S_OK != hr)
       {
          printf("XML Http Request pointer creation failed\n");
          return 0;
       }
    
       // Call open function.
       _variant_t vAsync = (bool)FALSE;
       pXMLHttpReq->open(sMethod, 
          sSourceUrl, 
          vAsync, 
          vUser, 
          vPassword);
       pXMLHttpReq->setRequestHeader((bstr_t)"Destination", sDestUrl);
     
       // Send the request to set the search criteria.
       pXMLHttpReq->send();
    
       // OK, get response.   
       long lStatus;
       pXMLHttpReq->get_status(&lStatus);
    
       printf("\n~~~~~~~~\n%d\n", lStatus);
       BSTR bstrResp;
       pXMLHttpReq->get_statusText(&bstrResp);
       printf("\n~~~~~~~~\n%s\n", (char*)(bstr_t)bstrResp);
    
       _bstr_t bstrAllHeaders;
       bstrAllHeaders = pXMLHttpReq->getAllResponseHeaders();
       printf("\n~~~~~~~~\n%s\n", (char*)bstrAllHeaders);
    
       BSTR bstrResponseText;
       pXMLHttpReq->get_responseText(&bstrResponseText);
       printf("\n~~~~~~~~\n%s\n", (char*)(bstr_t)bstrResponseText);   
       }
       catch(_com_error &e)
       {
       printf("Error\a\a\n\tCode = %08lx\n"
          "\tCode meaning = %s\tSource = %s\n\tDescription = %s\n",
          e.Error(), 
          e.ErrorMessage(), 
          (char*)e.Source(), 
          (char*)e.Description());
       }
    
       CoUninitialize(); 
       
       return 0;
    } 
    					
  5. Make the changes marked by "TODO:" in the code.
  6. Compile and then run the code.

    Note that the test.eml mail item is now in both Testfolder1 and Testfolder2.
