4.4.1 Group Header

Ryan Gregg creates a new group header named "My Work Calendars" to group his shortcuts in his e-mail client application.

The client sends a RopCreateMessage ROP request ([MS-OXCROPS] section 2.2.6.2) that has a value for the FolderId field set to the ID of the Common Views folder and the Associated flag set to 1 and then waits for the server to respond. The server response contains a handle to the Message object.

The client uses the Session ID 0x12345678 (generated at random on initialization) and generates a GUID for this shortcut: 5BA943D8DAAA462CA63E9136F65C8681.

The client then sends a RopSetProperties ROP request ([MS-OXCROPS] section 2.2.8.6) to set the following properties. The property data types are all defined in ([MS-OXCDATA] section 2.11.1).

The client then sends a RopSaveChangesMessage ROP request ([MS-OXCROPS] section 2.2.6.3) to persist the object on the server, and a RopRelease ROP request ([MS-OXCROPS] section 2.2.15.3) to release the object.
