The following table lists the methods of the IItem interface.
Name Description GetInterface Returns the specified dual interface on the object. GetStream Returns the item's content stream.
Component Object Model (COM) classes that provide implementations of the IItem interface can be used to bind and manage any item in an Exchange store, including collections (folders) and resources. The properties defined on the interface are common properties defined by the urn:content-classes:item content class, and all store content classes extend this base class.
If the bound item is a stream-based content class, such as urn:content-classes:document or urn:content-classes:message, the GetStream Method can be used to access the associated content stream.
Properties on the interface have type and semantic definitions identical to the corresponding schema property. For example, the ObjectCount Property has the same type and semantic definition as the corresponding objectcount Field.
