Read email in folder in O365

Earlier I posted how to read email in your inbox in O365. After having to write code to read email in a specific folder I thought I would add it here for everyone to use.

This specific code reads through all the emails in the specified folder and outputs who the email was sent to (yes weird I know but I was cc’ed on these specific emails so I wanted to know who really was the recipient)

# Written by Ben Penney $mail="" $password="password" $FolderName = "foldername" # Set the path to your copy of EWS Managed API $dllpath = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\Web Services\2.2\Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll" # Load the Assemply [void][Reflection.Assembly]::LoadFile($dllpath) # Create a new Exchange service object $service = new-object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService #These are your O365 credentials $Service.Credentials = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WebCredentials($mail,$password) # this TestUrlCallback is purely a security check $TestUrlCallback = { param ([string] $url) if ($url -eq "") {$true} else {$false} } # Autodiscover using the mail address set above $service.AutodiscoverUrl($mail,$TestUrlCallback) # create Property Set to include body and header of email $PropertySet = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.PropertySet([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.BasePropertySet]::FirstClassProperties) # set email body to text $PropertySet.RequestedBodyType = [Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.BodyType]::Text; # Set how many emails we want to read at a time $numOfEmailsToRead = 100 # Index to keep track of where we are up to. Set to 0 initially. $index = 0 $folderView = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderView(20) $folderView.PropertySet = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.PropertySet([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.BasePropertySet]::IdOnly) $folderView.PropertySet.Add([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderSchema]::DisplayName) $searchFilter = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.SearchFilter+IsEqualTo([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.FolderSchema]::DisplayName,$FolderName) $findFolderResults = $service.FindFolders([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.WellKnownFolderName]::Inbox,$searchFilter,$folderView) $findFolderResults.Folders.ID.UniqueID # Do/while loop for paging through the folder do { # Set what we want to retrieve from the folder. This will grab the first $pagesize emails $view = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ItemView($numOfEmailsToRead,$index) # Retrieve the data from the folder $findResults = $findFolderResults.Folders[0].FindItems($view) foreach ($item in $findResults.Items) { # load the additional properties for the item $item.Load($propertySet) # Output the results "$($item.ToRecipients.Address)" } # Increment $index to next block of emails $index += $numOfEmailsToRead } while ($findResults.MoreAvailable) # Do/While there are more emails to retrieve
