Dim instance As DeleteAttachmentType

The DeleteAttachment operation returns the identifier and new change key of the item that held the attachment before it was deleted.

The following code example shows a DeleteItem request that deletes two attachments.

static void DeleteAttachment(ExchangeServiceBinding esb)
    // Create the request.
    DeleteAttachmentTyperequest = new DeleteAttachmentType();
    // Identify the attachments to delete.
    RequestAttachmentIdType[] attachments = new RequestAttachmentIdType[2];
    attachments[0] = new RequestAttachmentIdType();
    attachments[1] = new RequestAttachmentIdType();
    attachments[0].Id = "AAAlAE1B";
    attachments[1].Id = "AAAlAE1B";

    request.AttachmentIds = attachments;

        DeleteAttachmentResponseType response = esb.DeleteAttachment(request);
        ArrayOfResponseMessagesType aormt = response.ResponseMessages;
        ResponseMessageType[] rmta = aormt.Items;

        foreach (ResponseMessageType rmt in rmta)
            DeleteAttachmentResponseMessageType darmt = (rmt as DeleteAttachmentResponseMessageType);

            if (darmt.ResponseClass == ResponseClassType.Success)
                Console.WriteLine("Attachment deleted from ItemId: " + darmt.RootItemId.RootItemId);    
    catch (Exception e)
