Starting with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with Update Rollup 4 (RU4) applied, the item identifier of the new item is returned in the response message (CopyItemResponseType). Item identifiers are not returned in responses for cross-mailbox or mailbox to public folder CopyItem operations.


The following code example copies two items to the Inbox.

static void CopyItem(ExchangeServiceBinding esb)
{ 
    // Identify the items to copy.
    ItemIdType item1 = new ItemIdType();
    ItemIdType item2 = new ItemIdType();
    item1.Id = "AAAlAE1BQ1";
    item2.Id = "AAAlAE1BQ2";
    ItemIdType[] items = new ItemIdType[2] { item1, item2 };

    // Identify the destination folder.
    DistinguishedFolderIdType destFolder = new DistinguishedFolderIdType();
    destFolder.Id = DistinguishedFolderIdNameType.inbox;
    
    // Form the copy item request.
    CopyItemType request = new CopyItemType();
    request.ItemIds = items;
    request.ToFolderId = new TargetFolderIdType();
    request.ToFolderId.Item = destFolder;

    try
    {
        // Send the request and get the response.
        CopyItemResponseType response = esb.CopyItem(request);
        ArrayOfResponseMessagesType aormt = response.ResponseMessages;
        ResponseMessageType[] rmta = aormt.Items;

        foreach (ResponseMessageType rmt in rmta)
        {
            if (rmt.ResponseClass == ResponseClassType.Success)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Successful item copy!");
            }
        }
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(e.Message);
    }
}
