Importance Property (Message Object)

Exchange Server 2003

Topic Last Modified: 2004-06-09

The Importance property returns or sets the importance of the message. Read/write.

objMessage.Importance

Long

The Importance property can have exactly one of the following values:

Constant

Value

Description

CdoLow

0

Low importance

CdoNormal

1

Normal importance (default)

CdoHigh

2

High importance

AppointmentItem objects in a Microsoft® Schedule+ calendar folder do not have the full set of attributes of a general message. If you obtain the default calendar folder by passing CdoDefaultFolderCalendar to the Session object's GetDefaultFolder method, its appointments have no defined value for the Importance property. An attempt to access Importance in this case returns CdoE_NOT_FOUND.

The Importance property corresponds to the MAPI property PR_IMPORTANCE. It can be rendered into HTML hypertext using the CDO Rendering ObjectRenderer object. To specify this, set the object renderer's DataSource property to this Message object and the property parameter of the RenderProperty method to CdoPR_IMPORTANCE.

This code fragment sets the importance of a message as high:

' from the sample function QuickStart:
    Set objMessage = objSession.Outbox.Messages.Add
    ' ... check here to verify the message was created ...
    objMessage.Subject = "Meeting change"
    objMessage.Text = "Reschedule to Wednesday at noon."
    objMessage.Importance = CdoHigh
    objMessage.Send
