MarkAsJunk operation

Exchange Server 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Find information about the MarkAsJunk EWS operation.

Applies to:  Exchange Online | Exchange Server 2013 | Office 365 

The MarkAsJunk operation adds and removes users from the blocked email list and moves email messages to the Junk Email folder.

This operation was introduced in Exchange Server 2013.

The MarkAsJunk operation contains two Boolean options to indicate whether an email sender should be added to the blocked sender list and whether the target email message should be moved to the default Junk Email folder or the Inbox folder. The actions are determined by the values of the IsJunk and MoveItem attributes. The following are the possible actions based on the value combinations for the IsJunk and MoveItem attributes:

  • If the IsJunk attribute is set to true, and the MoveItem attribute is set to true, the sender of the target email message is added to the blocked sender list and the email message is moved to the Junk Dmail folder.

  • If the IsJunk attribute is set to true, and the MoveItem attribute is set to false, the sender of the target email message is added to the blocked sender list and the email message is not moved from the folder.

  • If the IsJunk attribute is set to false, and the MoveItem attribute is set to true, the sender of the target email messageis removed from the blocked sender list and the email message is moved to the Inbox folder.

  • If the IsJunk attribute is set to false, and the MoveItem attribute is set to false, the sender of the target email message is removed from the blocked sender list and the email message is not moved from the folder.

Important note Important

The contents of the blocked sender list are not discoverable from EWS. If a sender is added to the blocked sender list, you need to keep a copy of an email message sent by the blocked sender to unblock the sender in the future.

The MarkAsJunk operation can use the SOAP headers that are listed in the following table.

Header name

The following example of a MarkAsJunk operation request shows how to add the sender of an email to the blocked sender list and move the email to the junk mail folder. The MarkAsJunk operation accepts the unique email message identifier to identify the email that is used to reference the sender that is added to the blocked sender list.

The following example of a MarkAsJunk operation request shows how to remove the sender of an email message from the blocked sender list and move the email message to the Inbox folder. You need to keep an email message sent by the blocked sender to remove the sender from the blocked sender list. The sender’s email address is associated with email messages that have been sent by the sender. Removing a sender from the blocked sender list will not succeed if the reference email message no longer exists in the user’s mailbox. The item identifier used to associate an email message with its sender must be associated with an item that exists in the Exchange mailbox. We recommend that you create a hidden folder to store items sent by previously blocked senders so that the senders can be unblocked from the client application. In the event that an item has been removed from the Exchange mailbox, an administrator has to use the Exchange Management Console to access the blocked sender list to remove a sender from the list. For information about how to unblock a user by using the Exchange Management Console, see How to configure the safe senders and blocked senders settings in Office 365.
