The following table lists the 500-level status codes returned by the Microsoft® Exchange Server 2003 WebDAV protocol service. Along with each status code or group of codes are the names of associated HTTP methods and a description of each status code.

Status Code Method Description
All 500 Level Codes * Server Failure.
500 Internal Server Error [HTTP] The server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request. [HTTP/1.1]
501 Not Implemented [HTTP] Any The server does not support the functionality that is required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource. [HTTP/1.1]. Contrast with Status Code 405.
PUT Method Error when a server receives a Content-* header it does not understand in a PUT operation.
502 Bad Gateway [HTTP] The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, received an invalid response from the upstream server that it accessed in attempting to fulfill the request. [HTTP/1.1]
COPY Method, MOVE Method The destination could be on another server and the destination server will not accept the resource. [WebDAV]
503 Service Unavailable [HTTP] The server is currently unable to handle the request due to temporary overloading or to maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition. [HTTP/1.1]
504 Gateway Timeout The server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, did not receive a timely response from the upstream server specified by the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) (for example, HTTP, FTP, LDAP) or some other auxiliary server (for example, DNS) that it needed to access to complete the request. [HTTP/1.1]
505 HTTP Version not supported Any The server does not support the HTTP protocol version that was used in the request message. [HTTP/1.1]
507 Insufficient Storage PROPPATCH Method, MKCOL Method The resource does not have enough space to set the properties or make the collection. [WebDAV]
COPY Method The destination resource does not have sufficient space. [WebDAV]
SEARCH Method The query produced more results than the server is able to transmit. Partial results have been transmitted. The server must send a body that matches the body for Code 207, except that there may exist resources that match the search criteria for which no corresponding response exists in the reply.
