SESC creates EWS push subscriptions which provide for notification from Exchange when users put email into the spam submission folder.  SESC caches this information in a configuration file. This article contains steps to dump the SESC subscription cache to an XML file.

1. Download subscriptionbin.exe to the SESC server.
2. Open a command prompt.
3. Run the tool like this:

subscriptionbin.exe -c <sescinstalldir>\bin\configuration\subscription.bin <outputfilename>

The following is an example where the subscription information is written to c:\temp\subscription.xml:

subscriptionbin.exe -c "c:\program files\symantec\SESC\1.0\bin\configuration\subscription.bin" c:\temp\subscription.xml

NOTE:  Double quotes must be used when there is a space in the path.

The following is an example of data that shows up in the XML output:
