MAPI CDO will not be supported for Exchange 2016


I wanted to point out a significant note for some in the Exchange 2016 Architecture blog post here : http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2015/05/05/exchange-server-2016-architecture.aspx.  Specifically, that Exchange 2016 will not support clients using Exchange's MAPI (aka MAPI \ CDO) to access Exchange Data.  Exchange's MAPI has been out of main stream support for some time now (as it's tied to the lifecycle of Exchange 2003), so it isn't a surprise that Exchange 2016 will no longer allow it.  However, for some ISVs and vendors still relying on MAPI \ CDO this is important note.  The time to start planning and developing the next version of your product is now so you are ready when Exchange 2016 ships.

    Hi Dave, any idea how to replace/recode IMAPIProp::GetProps to get all properties of an item without MAPI?

    GetItem with BaseShape AllProperties does not get a list of extended properties.

    1. Sorry, if I recall correctly, there is no way to get all properties using EWS like you do in MAPI.
