IPOutlookApp

Windows Mobile 6.5
A version of this page is also available for
4/8/2010

The IPOutlookApp interface represents the Outlook Mobile application object. This object serves the following purposes:

  • As the root object, it provides access to all of the other objects in the POOM hierarchy.
  • It provides direct access to newly created items, without having to traverse the object hierarchy.
  • It provides direct access to existing items.

An application creates this interface by calling CoCreateInstance, using the CLSID_Application globally unique identifier (GUID), and receives a reference to an application object. The application object is the only POOM object retrieved with CoCreateInstance.
