Hi everyone. I've just opened OfficeDev/ews-java-api#542 and I would really appreciate if someone who knows a bit more about the possible authentication methods in EWS could check this. I'm pretty sure that it could be helpful for others as well, as I've already found some similar issues in the queue.
Hi guys. Can we use this library with exchange 2016 ?

Hi ! is there a way to get all the emails in the conversation from a specific emailId? or is there a way to get the Convarsation Object by a ConversationId object? Thanks !
Hi! I'm searching a way to get shared calendars. AFAIK, I need to get PR_WLINK_ENTRYID (pidtagwlinkEntryId) that I should decode from binary and then get the corresponding ewsid. If that's correct, would you mind providing a snippet? (I posted on SOF https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39920641/ews-access-shared-calendars-items-appointments, got PidtagwlinkEntryId from MFCMapi, but need to make the process automatic, preferably in Java).

Hi there, I wanted to ask if I can find a javadoc anywhere ?

Hi guys. Can anyone help me with a question, please? I am playing around with EWS Java Api and currently I'm trying to understand one thing.
If I loop through some items in Sent Items folder, I won't see any Emails that have: getIsFromMe() == true or getIsSubmitted() == true.
As per docs:

  • Gets a value indicating whether the item has been sent by the current
  • authenticated user.


  • Gets a value indicating whether the message has been submitted to be sent.
    Aren't those values suppose to be True in Sent Items folder? If no, how can I check that Email was sent?
@serious6 Can we use this to send email using Non-Microsoft Server?
Hi, can anyone help me please...
I have implemented a Liferay calendar portlet. I have started with ews-java-api 2.0. For testing, I gave always username/password as Hard-Code in my Code.
and Now I want to test it with signed in Liferay user. The problem is that Liferay gives me only the username and the encrypted password.
How can I do ews-authentication without forcing user to login again?

We have built a basic javax-mail provider for EWS using the EWS API and were looking to opensource it
Seemed like putting it with the ews-java api would be the best spot. Wanted to check if the OfficeDev team would be willing to host it?
Hello to all. Who can explane how to subscribe to pull notifications to Calendar folder?
Jose Carlos

@retor I did that a while ago, but maybe it helps you.

Subscribe to pull events:

        List  folder = new ArrayList();
        folder.add(new FolderId().getFolderIdFromWellKnownFolderName(WellKnownFolderName.Calendar));

        PullSubscription subscription = ExchangeClient.getExchangeService().subscribeToPullNotifications(folder,5, /* timeOut: the subscription will end if the server is not polled within 5 minutes. */
                null, /* watermark: null to start a new subscription. */

        LOG.info("Subscription successful Id: ! "+subscription.getId() + " - Watermark: ! "+subscription.getWaterMark());
        LOG.info("Starting thread...");
        new Thread(new RetrieveEvents(subscription)).start();

RetrieveEvents thread:

    public void run() {
        LOG.info("Thread started!");
        try {
            sleep (60000);
            LOG.info("Awake! Let's check the events!");
            // Wait a couple minutes, then poll the server for new events.
            GetEventsResults events = subscription.getEvents();

            if (events != null && events.getItemEvents() != null && events.getAllEvents().size() > 0) {
                // Loop through all item-related events.
                for (ItemEvent itemEvent : events.getItemEvents()) {
                    LOG.info("itemEvent id: " + itemEvent.getItemId());
            else {
                LOG.info("No result! :(");
        catch (Exception e) {
            LOG.error("Exception", e);
@josecyn thanks. Tomorrow I understand how to do it. And I do it on RxJava.
Here subscription is an object on server, what store updates and I can retrieve any updates from them.
Sorry for my English. Yesterday not tomorrow)))))

Hello there. Sorry to disrupt but I'm wondering if there is some way to search for all Tasks in one mailbox.
I can get some tasks form the WellKnownFolerName.Tasks but I have some task created form mails but cannot find them.
Gervais Blaise
At this time I'm able to get tasks from WellKnownFolderName.Tasks and I was able to get all EmailMessage from WellKnownFolderName.Inbox that have the follow-up flag via one extended property: new ExtendedPropertyDefinition(0x1090, MapiPropertyType.Integer)

Hello Guys, not sure if this question has been asked before - I am trying to use this API and create a Java REST micro service using this which can work with user calendars .. but I don't want the web client to pass me users username and password and instead used windows SSO authentication and pass me the token (NTLM maybe) which I can use in microservice to connect to exchange using ews java API - do you think the same is possible? Are there any references you can point me to using which I can build this scenario locally?
Hello Guys,
I am working on a project and need some help with the java api. I need "Add and remove email addresses from the Blocked Senders List by using EWS in Exchange" as mentioned in this link
Any idea's? Appreciate your time.
Hello Guys
Domenic Datti
I don't know if anyone uses this room for support 😐

hello guys, im using push notification subscribe :

System.out.println("START MAIL EXCHANGE");
            ExchangeService service = new ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2010_SP2);
            service.setUrl(new URI("https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx"));
            ExchangeCredentials credentials = new WebCredentials(username, passworrd, "outlook.office365.com");

            URI uri = new URI("http://localhost:8087/api/mail");

            WellKnownFolderName wkFolder = WellKnownFolderName.Inbox;
            FolderId folderId = new FolderId(wkFolder);
            List<FolderId> folder = new ArrayList<FolderId>();
            PushSubscription subscription = service.subscribeToPushNotifications(
                folder, uri , 1, null,
                EventType.NewMail, EventType.Created, EventType.Deleted, EventType.Modified, EventType.Moved);
            /*IAsyncResult result = service.beginSubscribeToPushNotifications(null, null, folder, uri, 1, null, EventType.NewMail, EventType.Created, EventType.Deleted);
            PushSubscription subscription1 = service.endSubscribeToPushNotifications(result);*/
            System.out.println("END MAIL EXCHANGE");
        } catch (Exception e) {
            System.out.println("EXCEPTION MAIL EXCHANGE");

It's too late... But in any way, it's quite strange to wait for some events on the endpoint "localhost".

hello guys Im new to the use of ews-java-API. when i try to get inbox folder i get this error.
microsoft.exchange.webservices.data.core.exception.service.remote.ServiceRequestException: The request failed. An element node 'soap:Envelope' of the type START_ELEMENT was expected, but node '{http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/}definitions' of type START_ELEMENT was found.

please help me

Pavel Kropachev
Could you show your piece of code and SOAP request that is sent to server?
How are you setting the URL of the service?
I try only to get inbox item count with this code
public class EwsService extends AbstractService {

    private ExchangeService service;

    public EwsService() {
            this.service = new ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2010_SP2);


     * Open a ews connection and return number of inbox's item
     * @return INBOX item
     * @throws Exception
    public String testService() throws Exception {
        try {
            service.setCredentials(new WebCredentials("username@domain.com", "password", "domain.com"));
            service.setUrl(new URI("https://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com/ews/Exchange.asmx"));
            Folder inbox = new Folder(this.service);
            inbox = Folder.bind(service, WellKnownFolderName.Inbox);
            return new StringBuilder("INBOX (").append(inbox.getTotalCount()).append(")").toString();

        } catch (Exception e) {
            this.getLogger().warn("Error occured ", e);
        return "{error}";

Pavel Kropachev

You can join declaration and assignment for 'inbox' variable.

Folder inbox = Folder.bind(this.service, WellKnownFolderName.Inbox);

Instead of:

Folder inbox = new Folder(this.service);
inbox = Folder.bind(this.service, WellKnownFolderName.Inbox);

Your code works in my case, I use Office 365.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

        <t:RequestServerVersion Version="Exchange2010_SP2"/>
                <t:DistinguishedFolderId Id="inbox"/>

And EwsResponse:

Do you use on-premise Exchange server? Could you capture raw SOAP?
Just add the following code before use the ExchangeService:
            this.service.setTraceListener(new ITraceListener() {
                public void trace(String type, String message) {
                    System.out.println("Type: " + type + "\nMessage: " + message);
Hello thanks, after join declaration and assignment for 'inbox' variable and adding trace code , i got this:

Pavel Kropachev
EWS SOAP request is correct.
Looks like that hostname which you use to connect to EWS is not included to certificate of your Exchange server. In the result, verification of this hostname is failed.
You can use one of the subject alternative names from certificate to connect, e.g. "https://webmail.xxxxx.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx", "https://mail.xxxxx.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx".
Or use custom service (with non-default hostname verifier) to ignore verification of hostname (in fact, allow all hosts).
Thank you now its works.
I customize the Exchange services and switch off hostname verification. So i have a question
To understand better, what is the disadvantage to override hostname verifier
