.stm File Extension

Developer: Microsoft
File type: Exchange Streaming Media File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .stm. Files with the file extension .stm can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .stm files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .stm file?

An Exchange streaming media file is created and used by the Microsoft Exchange Server software, and these Exchange streaming media files are integrated with proprietary encoding specifications used for the STM file format, and the STM file format was developed by Microsoft. The Exchange information store also uses the content stored in these Exchange streaming media files. Affixed with the .stm extension, the content of an Exchange streaming media file may consist of native Web content streamed through the Microsoft Exchange Server software. Email messages recently sent and have yet to be accessed by a user via the corresponding mail client are stored in these Exchange streaming media files, and these Exchange streaming media files containing those email messages are saved in the mail server. When MAPI clients try to access the email messages stored in these Exchange streaming media files in the mail server, this content is transmitted and stored in the associated EDB files, and this is when the conversion of these email messages into the native Exchange format happens.

how to open a .stm file?

Launch a .stm file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .stm file will open it.

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 is a collaborative software from Microsoft Corporation that runs on the Windows Server operating system. Its can function as a mail server, a contact manager, and a calendaring software. Exchange Server 2010 has new features that enhance its efficiency. CCR, SCC, LCR, and site functionality SCR has been replaced by DAG (Data Availability Groups) to provide a higher level of availability for database (as opposed to server level availability). As a result database copies may be removed or added without requiring major reconfiguration of the server. Another feature is the use of Client Access Server (CAS) arrays. Multiple Client Access Servers are contained in an array, with a single identification in an Active Directory. Thus, faster client connection is effected by the single name endpoint. In previous editions of the Microsoft Exchange Server, a clustered mailbox server cannot be combined with another role. In Exchange Server 2010 users can combine the Mailbox Server Role with the Client Access Server and Hub Transport roles.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .stm files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .stm. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
