Microsoft Exchange is an enterprise messaging solution that provides improved e-mail security and enhanced operational efficiency for members of the IT staff. The Exchange action in AutoMate contains a variety of activities that one can use to automate the most common operations on Exchange objects, like appointments, contacts, tasks and e-mails. These activities allow you to create, get, move, delete or modify Exchange objects. This action supports Exchange 2003 which uses the WebDav protocol and Exchange 2007/2010 which uses the EWS (Exchange Web Service) protocol.

IMPORTANT: The Exchange activities in AutoMate use the Microsoft Exchange engine to perform their work. Because of this, you must have a valid copy of Exchange Server installed in order to use these activities.
