What is Exchange Scripting Agent?

A tool for Microsoft Exchange Server that allows server-side scripts to be written that execute actions when specific events or conditions occur in public folders.

These events include timing events, message postings, and message deletions. For example, an action could be triggered in response to generation of an Out-of-Office (OOF) message. Another example of such an event is the automatic generation of a reminder message when a user doesn’t read his or her e-mail for a specified number of days.

A form that is submitted to a public folder could be validated by a script that determines whether it satisfies some specific criteria, such as a minimum order quantity. Scripts can be written in Microsoft Visual Basic, Scripting Edition (VBScript) or JScript using the Exchange Scripting Agent.
