ItemProperties Object (Outlook)

A collection of all properties associated with the item.

Use the ItemProperties property to return the ItemProperties collection. Use ItemProperties.Item(index), where index is the name of the object or the numeric position of the item within the collection, to return a single ItemProperty object.

Note Note

The ItemProperties collection is zero-based, meaning that the first item in the collection is referenced by 0.

Use the Add method to add a new item property to the ItemProperties collection. Use the Remove method to remove an item property from the ItemProperties collection.

Note Note

You can only add or remove custom properties. Custom properties are denoted by the IsUserProperty.

The following example creates a new MailItem object and stores its ItemProperties collection in a variable called objItems.

Sub ItemProperty() 
 'Creates a new MailItem and access its properties 
 Dim objMail As MailItem 
 Dim objItems As ItemProperties 
 Dim objItem As ItemProperty 
 'Create the mail item 
 Set objMail = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) 
 'Create a reference to the item properties collection 
 Set objItems = objMail.ItemProperties 
 'Create a reference to the item property page 
 Set objItem = objItems.item(0) 
End Sub
