    My guess would be that Microsoft Exchange Server is not written in Symbian C++, and its API-s might be available somewhere else (http://msdn.microsoft.com for example).

    The things you want to manage are called contacts. You can search for CContact* in the SDK Help, and there should be examples and threads on Forum Nokia too (the main site, discussion boards and maybe the Wiki).

    you r correct but some information i can provide you for clarification.

    the details(telephone number/email/etc) of all the contacts in the users contact list are downloaded from the exchange server and copied into the phone’s contact list. this is my task. for this first i need to connect to exchange server then i can access the data and placed in device contact list.

    You would need to contact Microsoft and licence the ActiveSync protocol.

    I guess that Microsoft Exchange Server stores data in files. So you can easily reverse-engineer them :-)

    Re: how to connect microsoft exchange server using symbian api

    There are no API's in Symbian -none, nothing, nicht, nien non noit geen....

    If you look at the link I posted you will see various companies have LICENCED the api from MICROSOFT.

    This explains the XML/SOAP/RPC layer calls you need to make to the Exchange server and the responses you get back

    Re: how to connect microsoft exchange server using symbian api

    There is Nokia's Mail For Exchange however the API is almost certainly internal to Nokia so you will have to hope they would for some reason grant you access to it if you requested it the alternative is to approach MS to obtain a copy of the MAS protocol - but if you are just an individual/small company I very much doubt they would license it to you
