4.2 CreateFolder Operation

The following is an example of a CreateFolder operation with the CreateFolderType complex type.

The client constructs the request XML and sends it to the server. A new folder named Custom Folder is created in the Inbox. If the newly created folder already exists within the specified parent folder, an error is thrown.

   <soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" 
         xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/messages" 
         xmlns:t="http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/services/2006/types" 
         xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
     <soap:Header>
       <t:RequestServerVersion Version="Exchange2010" />
     </soap:Header>
     <soap:Body>
       <m:CreateFolder>
         <m:ParentFolderId>
           <t:DistinguishedFolderId Id="inbox" />
         </m:ParentFolderId>
         <m:Folders>
           <t:Folder>
             <t:FolderClass>IPF.MyCustomFolderClass</t:FolderClass>
             <t:DisplayName>Custom Folder</t:DisplayName>
             <t:PermissionSet>
               <t:Permissions />
             </t:PermissionSet>
           </t:Folder>
         </m:Folders>
       </m:CreateFolder>
     </soap:Body>
   </soap:Envelope>

The server constructs the response XML and sends it to the client. The FolderId element Id and ChangeKey attributes have been shortened to preserve readability.
