Returns a Boolean that determines if the item is in conflict. Read-only.

expression .IsConflict

expression A variable that represents a MailItem object.

Whether or not an item is in conflict is determined by the state of the application. For example, when a user is offline and tries to access an online folder the action will fail. In this scenario, the IsConflict property will return True.

If True, the specified item is in conflict.

The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example creates a new mail item and attempts to send it. If the IsConflict property returns True, the item will not be sent.

Sub NewMail() 
 'Creates and tries to send a new e-mail message. 
 Dim objNewMail As Outlook.MailItem 
 Set objNewMail = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem) 
 objNewMail.Body = _ 
 "This e-mail message was created automatically on " & Now 
 objNewMail.To = "Jeff Smith" 
 If objNewMail.IsConflict = False Then 
 MsgBox "Conflict: Cannot send mail item." 
 End If 
 Set olApp = Nothing 
 Set objNewMail = Nothing 
End Sub
