Well, I had an idea that maybe there is an alternate, internal name of the 
inbox that exchange uses and that I can use since its official name is 
arbitrary.

You're thinking it's a different way of authentication? 

I would have to agree, but I honestly don't know enough about it to say that
WebDAV needs the authentication passed in the string.  This example of
enumerating the folders would indicate you are correct:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/e2k3/e2k3/_
exch2k_the_http_url_scheme.asp

And I assume you've seen this as well:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/e2k3/e2k3/_
esdk_arch_webdav_security.asp 

My thoughts are that you would have to enumerate the folders under the
mailbox root folder.  From there, your app would have to figure out which
one was the 'Inbox' if the name is not Inbox before sending the webdav
request to render the items. 

How will you know which folder is the correct folder, just out of
curiousity?

Yes, and it gave me 0 (zero) unread mails instead of the expected (in my
case) 7, and hence my conclusion was that I ended up in the Inbox´s parent
folder (right or wrong).

Your suggestion works if you simply enter it in the address field of a
browser (it will get you to your email service), but that´s not good enough
for the webdav call as it seems...it even works when you remove the name
from the url as well when entering the address in the web browser, but that
still does not work for the xmlhttp/webdav call.

I think the difference is that when you enter the url in the address field
of the browser, the system already knows who you are, but the webdav call
most likely need to have that information with it to the exchange server.

I'm trying to remember if the URL of
http://<myexchangeserver>/exchange/<myname>/ would give you a particular
folder by default or not.  Have you tried it that way? 

The only other thing that comes to mind is to iterate the folders and figure
out which one is the inbox.  I don't know of a different constant other than
what was posted earlier. 

Unless the note at the bottom of this helps?

Well, basically yes, but the call is made from the client side (which I
forgot to write, sorry) in a web browser, so I don´t use the sql query way.
I use the javascript way.

I need to contruct a url on the form

http://<myexchangeserver>/exchange/<myname>/<theinbox>

and it is the <theinbox> part that is the problem.

Is it maybe possible to send in a parameter in the url instead which
exchange understands..?

Subject: [exchangelist] The name of the inbox

http://www.MSExchange.org/

I have a small problem, I need to be able to send an XMLHTTP message via
wedav to an exchange server 2003, with the intention to count the number of
unread emails in the inbox.

Here is the problem: Different users have different names on the inbox, and
the inbox name must be a part of the xmlhttp call url (as it seems).

Is there an internal name or so in exchange server for the inbox that I can
use instead of the name that the users see, so I don´t have to worry about
different names of the inboxes?
I could force everyone to use the same inbox name in this case, but consider
the situation where different users use different languages in the same
exchange server.
Another solution is to use personalization and let the users tell the system
their names of the inboxes as well, but these solutions are somewhat ugly...
