2.2.3.2.16 Message Flagging

To set the value of the PidLidFlagRequest property ([MS-OXCSPAM] section 2.2.1.3), clients MUST write the value to an X-Message-Flag header.

MIME readers copy the value of an X-Message-Flag header to the value of the PidLidFlagRequest property. In addition, when an X-Message-Flag header is present, MIME readers SHOULD<122> do all the following:

  1. Set the value of the PidTagFlagStatus property ([MS-OXOFLAG] section 2.2.1.1) to 2 (denoting that the message is flagged).

  2. Copy the value of the PidTagSubject property ([MS-OXPROPS] section 2.1023) to the value of the PidLidToDoTitle property ([MS-OXOFLAG] section 2.2.1.12).

  3. Set the value of the PidLidTaskStatus property ([MS-OXOTASK] section 2.2.2.2.2) to 0 (zero) (denoting that a task is not started).

  4. Delete or disregard any existing property values for the following properties:

    • PidLidTaskDueDate ([MS-OXOTASK] section 2.2.2.2.5)

    • PidLidTaskStartDate ([MS-OXOTASK] section 2.2.2.2.4)

    • PidTagFlagCompleteTime ([MS-OXOFLAG] section 2.2.1.3)

    • PidLidTaskDateCompleted ([MS-OXOTASK] section 2.2.2.2.9)

  5. Set the value of the PidLidTaskComplete property ([MS-OXOTASK] section 2.2.2.2.20) to FALSE.

  6. Set the value of the PidLidPercentComplete property ([MS-OXOFLAG] section 2.2.2.3) to 0.0.

  7. Set the value of the PidTagToDoItemFlags property ([MS-OXPROPS] section 2.1038) to 8.
