Five of the required properties are known as the base address properties for recipients:

  • PR_ADDRTYPE

  • PR_DISPLAY_NAME

  • PR_EMAIL_ADDRESS

  • PR_ENTRYID

  • PR_SEARCH_KEY

These properties are considered special because many other groups of similar properties are built upon this base group. The other groups are used to describe a recipient in various roles, such as a message's original or delegate sender. For more information about these properties and how to use them, see MAPI Address Types.

Messaging users can display a collection of their properties by supporting the PR_DETAILS_TABLE (PidTagDetailsTable) property. PR_DETAILS_TABLE is a display table that describes the layout of a details dialog box or a tabbed property page that displays recipient property information. MAPI creates details dialog boxes when a client calls the IAddrBook::Details method.

Messaging user objects can have other optional properties associated with them. MAPI defines many properties that provide additional addressing information about a messaging user. All of these properties are character strings. The following list shows the more commonly used properties:
