HTTP::Dav and Exchange

reasonablekeith has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks,

I'm banging my head against the wall here, and the docs aren't helping. I'm trying to automate parsing of a mailbox using webdav running on exchange. I've successfully been able to get to my inbox, and enumerate though all my inbox's emails (yay!). This gives me a url for each individual email. My problem is I can't seem to use this url to get the email message as a string.

Just doing a GET returns some html obviously intended for a browser. So Iím doing a PROPFIND. This looked hopeful, but I can't see anywhere in the response where the headers and the body are intact.

My best result comes from running...

my $d = HTTP::DAV->new(); $d->credentials( -url=>"http://host", -user=> 'user', -pass=> $password) or die $d->message; $d->open("http://host/exchange/user/Inbox/") or die $d->message; my $r = $d->propfind('http://host/exchange/user/blah.EML', 0); my $long_ls = $r->get_property('long_ls');
This does have some headers, but I can't just save $long_ls to disk as an .eml without it being garbled and missing the from address subject etc (although the bulk of the content does seem to be there).

I don't really know where to go from here.

Any help much appreciated.

TIA, Rob
