Mailbox support for native Exchange mail protocol?

Hi guys,

For various reasons, our system administrators are reluctant to provide POP3 or SMTP access to our mail server. I want to integrate our YouTrack installation with a support mailbox we have set up.

Is there any way to get YouTrack to be able to pull emails from the mailbox using Exchange's native protocol?

Hello, Seb!

We're using javamail library for mailbox. It supports POP3 and IMAP protocols for getting emails. What is native Exchange protocol? Where to get more information about it?

Hello Vadim,
I stumbled over this post looking for a way to integrate YouTrack with Exchange.
The native protocol of Exchange is ActiveSync.
Since Exchange 2007 there is something called EWS Managed Api and Microsoft also released a Java Client for this.
Unfortunately the client was removed from MSDN but I found a clone on GitHub (

I hope that helps.
