1.3.2 Properties

Properties are stored in streams contained within storages or at the top level of the .msg file. They can be classified into the following broad categories:

  • Fixed length properties — For more information, see section 2.1.2.

  • Variable length properties — For more information, see section 2.1.3.

  • Multiple-valued properties — For more information, see section 2.1.4.

Regardless of the category, a property is either a tagged property or a named property. There is no difference in the way the property is stored based on that attribute. However, for all named properties, appropriate mapping information has to be provided as specified by the named property mapping storage.
