Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

A SharePoint Foundation folder is a custom folder in Outlook that contains a live copy of the contact list or event list that lives on a SharePoint Foundation Web site. The contact list maps to a Contacts folder in Outlook and the event list maps to a Calendar folder.

SharePoint Foundation folders are automatically created under the SharePoint Folders node in the Navigation Pane when a contact list or an event list is exported from the SharePoint Foundation Web site.

Though SharePoint Foundation folders work the same way as other folders, there are a few exceptions. SharePoint Foundation folders are read-only and any attempt to edit folder properties or add, edit, or remove existing items will fail.

A folder in the user’s Microsoft Exchange server folder will never be a SharePoint Foundation folder, and no folder in the user’s default Personal Folders file (.pst) will ever be a SharePoint Foundation folder. Typically the SharePoint Foundation folders will be under the node SharePoint Folders in the Navigation Pane.
