sHREF = "https://myexserver/exchange/Administrator/Inbox/testabcd.EML"  ' TODO: change

sPassword = "test"    ' TODO: change

set HttpWebRequest = CreateObject("microsoft.xmlhttp")
'Set HttpWebRequest = New Msxml2.XMLHTTP30
HttpWebRequest.Open "PROPPATCH", sHREF, False, sUserName, sPassword 
HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"
HttpWebRequest.setRequestHeader "Depth:","0"

sReq = "<?xml version='1.0'?>"
sReq = sReq & "<d:propertyupdate xmlns:d='DAV:' xmlns:m='urn:schemas:mailheader:'>"
sReq = sReq & "<d:set><d:prop>"
sReq = sReq & "<m:subject>" & "test1" & "</m:subject>"
