IXPLogon::Idle

Last modified: July 23, 2011

Applies to: Outlook

Indicates that the system is idle, enabling the transport provider to perform low-priority operations.

HRESULT Idle(
  ULONG ulFlags
);

ulFlags

[in] Reserved; must be zero.

S_OK

The call succeeded and returned the expected value or values.

The MAPI spooler periodically calls the IXPLogon::Idle method, if requested, during times when the system is idle by passing the XP_LOGON_SP flag in the call to the IXPProvider::TransportLogon method that opened the current session. At times when the system is idle, the transport provider can perform background operations that are not appropriate during other calls, or that need to occur on a regular basis.
