ItemType Class

The ItemType class represents a generic item in the Exchange store.

Namespace:  ExchangeWebServices
Assembly:  EWS (in EWS.dll)

public class ItemType

The ItemType class is the base type for the TaskType, CalendarItemType, ContactItemType, and MessageType classes.

MessageType objects represent e-mail messages and all other items that are not strongly typed by the Exchange Web Services (EWS) schema. Items such as IPM.Sharing and IPM.InfoPath are returned as MessageType objects. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 does not return the base ItemType object in responses.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
