Contains a message that indicates the current status of a session resource.

Data type:



MAPI status

These properties give service providers and MAPI the opportunity to supply specific information about the status of a session resource, such as the integrated address book or a particular service provider. This property explains and provides additional information about a status code, or the PR_STATUS_CODE (PidTagStatusCode) property. Whereas PR_STATUS_CODE is required for all status objects, PR_STATUS_STRING and associated properties are optional. When the transport provider does not supply a value, the MAPI spooler supplies a default value.

The string is generated on the same side of the remote procedure call as the MAPI spooler; it travels through shared memory rather than being marshaled across a process boundary.
