MoveItemType Class

The MoveItemType class represents an operation to move items in a mailbox.

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

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The item identifier of the new item is returned in the response message (MoveItemResponseType). An item identifier is not returned in a response for a cross-mailbox or mailbox to public folder MoveItem Operation.

The following example shows how to move two items to the Deleted Items default folder.

static void MoveItem(ExchangeServiceBinding esb)
    // Identify the items to move.
    ItemIdType item1 = new ItemIdType();
    ItemIdType item2 = new ItemIdType();
    item1.Id = "AAAlAE1";
    item2.Id = "AAAlAE2";
    ItemIdType[] items = new ItemIdType[2] { item1, item2 };

    // Identify the destination folder.
    DistinguishedFolderIdType destFolder = new DistinguishedFolderIdType();
    destFolder.Id = DistinguishedFolderIdNameType.deleteditems;

    // Form the move request.
    MoveItemType request = new MoveItemType();
    request.ItemIds = items;
    request.ToFolderId = new TargetFolderIdType();
    request.ToFolderId.Item = destFolder;

        // Send the request and get the response.
        MoveItemResponseType response = esb.MoveItem(request);
        ArrayOfResponseMessagesType aormt = response.ResponseMessages;
        ResponseMessageType[] rmta = aormt.Items;

        foreach (ResponseMessageType rmt in rmta)
            if (rmt.ResponseClass == ResponseClassType.Error)
                throw new Exception("Item move failed.");
    catch (Exception e)
