Pocket Outlook Object Model Reference (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


The Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM) API provides access to Personal Information Manager (PIM) data on Windows Embedded CE-based devices. It mirrors the desktop version of the Outlook Object Model, yet it has a smaller scope of functionality. POOM is a COM-based type library that provides an objectoriented framework for creating, modifying, and displaying IAppointment, ITask and IContact items—and for manipulating the folders that contain them.

For information about the desktop version of the Outlook Object model, see this Microsoft Web site.

The following members are included in the POOM API.
