GetItem Operation

The GetItem operation gets items from the Exchange store.

The GetItem operation returns many item properties. The properties that are returned in a GetItem response vary based on the requested shape, requested additional properties, and the type of item returned.

Message elements represent e-mail messages and all other items that are not strongly typed by the Exchange Web Services (EWS) schema. Items such as IPM.Sharing and IPM.InfoPath are returned as Message elements. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 does not return the base Item element in responses.

The GetItem operation does not return attachments. It does return metadata about an attached item or file. Use the GetAttachment Operation to return an attachment.

The GetItem operation can use the SOAP headers that are listed and described in the following table.
