[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Im no WebDAV expert, but WebDAV is widely supported by Windows and Mac 
OS X. In fact a "modified" version of WebDAV is used by Outlook Express 
to access Hotmail accounts. Take a look at 
http://jhttpmail.sourceforge.net/httpmail.html for more info on the impl.

Quote from the author:
"In the last two years, Microsoft has invested heavily into WebDAV as 
the standard protocol for collaborative editing over the Internet. 
Products like IIS, SharePoint Server, and Outlook Server 2000 all 
include support for the protocol at their core. A recent article 
published in MSDN Magazine 
( http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/01/05/wss/wss.asp ) has a 
good example for accessing the new backend end storage included with 
Exchange Server 2000: Web Storage System (WSS). Reading this article..."
