I believe what you're looking for is urn:schemas:httpmail:msgfolderroot
Mailbox folder (root)

Subject: [exchangelist] The name of the inbox

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...
