Retrieving Global Address List from Exchange Server

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Hi everyone,

This is my 3rd post, always getting great help from here.

My last two questions were about sending email through ASP.NET, and adding web form to that email body, which is working :)

This time my boss wants me to send email addresses from our exchange server global address list. :(

For example,

Dropdownlist for send from who,  Dropdownlist for recieving person...The behind values should be email addresses.

And this information should come from global address list on our exchange server.


I am very newbie to ASP.NET so please instruct me step by step, what is the steps I need to do, very specifically please.

Thank you advance!!!

Global Address List (GAL), enumerating the GAL and Dist. Groups, obtain email address

I have an application in which I need to populate a drop-down with names and email addresses from the Global Address List (GAL). If that is too much data (which it probably will be), I would then need to obtain a collection of same data (name/email address) from a Distribution List to populate the drop-down.   I have never done this sort of thing before, so I apologize for the vagueness, but can anyone point me in the right direction?  Thanks in advance.

IP Address Blocking or Restriction in SQL Server

Go Global: Localizing Dynamic Web Apps with IIS 5.0 and SQL Server


The success of a database-driven international Web site depends on how well the code and localized content work together with the software on the client and server. Localizing a dynamic Web site is more complicated than localizing a static one. The use of HTML and ASP code for static and dynamic content on IIS 4.0 or 5.0, coupled with Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) and SQL Server, enables Web sites to support as many languages as necessary. Choosing the right character sets and code pages, the variations in the Unicode support for IIS 4.0 and 5.0, as well as ways to avoid some common pitfalls are all discussed.

TSQL: Passing array/list/set to stored procedure (MS SQL Server)

Passing array/list/set to stored procedure is fairly common task when you are working with Databases. You can meet this when you want to filter some collection. Other case - it can be an import into database from extern sources. I will consider few solutions: creation of sql-query at server code, put set of parameters to sql stored procedure's parameter with next variants: parameters separated by comma, bulk insert, and at last table-valued parameters (it is most interesting approach, which we can use from MS SQL Server 2008). Ok, let's suppose that we have list of items and we need to filter this items by categories ("TV", "TV game device", "DVD-player") and by firms ("Firm 1", "Firm2", "Firm 3). It will look at database like this So we need a query which will return us list of items from database. Also we need opportunity to filter these items by categories or by firms. We will filter them by identifiers. Ok, we know the mission. How we will solve it? Most easy way, used by junior developers - it is creating SQL-instruction with C# code, it can be like this List<int> categories = new List<int>() { 1, 2, 3 };   StringBuilder sbSql = new StringBuilder(); sbSql.Append( @" select i.Name as ItemName, f.Name as FirmName, c.Name as CategoryName from Item i inner join Firm f on i.FirmId =

Exchange Server 2007 SP1 mailbox migration into 2010

Hi Everyone, I’ve got all in one Exchange Server 2007 SP1 RU3 that got all in one role installed (HT-CAS-MBx) in Windows Server 2003 Standard R2 SP which is also running as domain controller with all FSMO role. I’m planning to migrate the Exchange Server 2007 server role into the Exchange Server 2010 Standard that I have prepared in my Virtual Machine of Windows Server 2008 R2, what is the safest migration path to make the email flow working end to end parallel (staging migration process). [B](please also not that this Exchange Server 2007 SP1 got so many problem like – OOF email error in Outlook 2007, meeting scheduler stopped working, etc… therefore updating it into SP3 is not the way here and I've backed up the mailbox using Backup Exec 2010 in case i can just restore the backed up mailbox into the new server 2010 if possible)[/B] My this is what I’m about to do: 1. Transfer all FSMO role into another domain controllers 2. Install and configure similar role in the new VM (Exchange Server 2010 Std.) 3. Confused… Things to do after all mailbox migration: 1. Cutover the MX record into the new server name 2. Install updated UCC- SSL certificate into the exchange server 2007 Any kind of help and suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, AWT /* Infrastructure Support Engineer */
