We are no longer sure that WebDAV is still relevant. We recently released a new HTTPS/HTTP client component (see http://www.rebex.net/https/ for details) and WebDAV would be a relatively simple extension on top of that. But it looks like WebDAV is rarely used now – it has been superseded by various REST APIs, so perhaps that’s what we should look into. What do you think?

    HTTP/HTTPS client component supports GET/PUT commands out-of-the-box, but to get drag&drop functionality working seamlessly, you would most likely have to add a bit of custom code that adds COPY, MOVE and possibly MKCOL. We'll keep this under review for now and try to find a way to eventually fit it into our roadmap. In the meantime, we will try to help any customers trying to achieve this using our HTTPS/HTTP client component.

    WebDav is often used to get Drag & Drop functionalities. If your new HTTPS/HTTP client component does the job efficiently, you got it, and most of us should be happy, I think.

    And for accessing MS Exchange (or Office365 Outlook), Rebex Secure Mail includes an EWS component (see http://www.rebex.net/secure-mail.net/features/ for details).
