<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
               xmlns:t="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types"
               xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/messages">

      <t:MailboxCulture>en-US</t:MailboxCulture>
   </soap:Header>
   <soap:Body >
      <m:GetImItemList/>
   </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>

The request SOAP body contains the following element:

The following example shows a successful response to a GetImItemList operation request. The response contains four IM groups. Three of the IM groups — Other Contacts, Tagged, and Favorites — are default groups in the Exchange store. The MyCustomGroup2 group is a custom user-created group. The Other Contacts and Tagged groups do not have members. The Favorites group has a single contact member. The MyCustomGroup2 has two member contacts. The item identifiers are provided so that subsequent GetItem requests can be performed to get more information about the IM contacts.

This example returns two personas. The first persona represents two contact items: Anthony Smith and Tony Smith. The combined contact information is returned in the Persona object. The second persona represents a single contact with the display name of Terence Adams.

Note Note

The Exchange store identifiers, item identifiers, source identifiers, folder identifiers, and persona identifiers have been shortened to preserve readability.
