expression A variable that represents a Conversation object.
Specifies the store that holds the Deleted Items folder to which items of the conversation are moved.
A constant from the OlAlwaysDeleteConversation enumeration that indicates whether all new items of the conversation are always moved to the Deleted Items folder of the specified delivey store.
If the Store parameter specifies a non-delivery store such as an archive .pst store, the GetAlwaysDelete method returns a constant from OlAlwaysDeleteConversation that applies to conversation items in the default delivery store. Items on a non-delivery store are not moved to the Deleted Items folder for the default delivery store.
If GetAlwaysDelete returns olAlwaysDelete, items of the conversation are always moved to the Deleted Items folder for the store that contains the items. In a cross-store conversation, items are moved to the Deleted Items folder for the store that contains the items. When GetAlwaysDelete returns olAlwaysDelete, the GetAlwaysMoveToFolder method returns a folder object that represents the Deleted Items folder for the default store.
If GetAlwaysDelete returns olAlwaysDeleteUnsupported, the specified store does not support the action of always moving items to the Deleted Items folder of that store.
If GetAlwaysDelete returns olDoNotDelete, new items that arrive in the conversation are not moved to the Deleted Items folder on the specified delivery store, and existing conversation items in the Deleted Items folder are moved to the Inbox.
The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Application (VBA) example shows how to verify the always-delete setting of the conversation of a selected mail item. The code example, DemoGetAlwaysDelete, verifies that conversations are enabled in the default store, obtains the conversation that involves the first mail item displayed in the Reading Pane if a conversation exists, uses GetAlwaysDelete to obtain the always-delete setting, and displays the setting.
Sub DemoGetAlwaysDelete() Dim oMail As Outlook.MailItem Dim oConv As Outlook.Conversation Dim oStore As Outlook.Store Dim intValue As Integer ' Get the item displayed in Reading Pane. Set oMail = ActiveExplorer.Selection(1) If Application.Session.DefaultStore.IsConversationEnabled Then Set oConv = oMail.GetConversation If Not (oConv Is Nothing) Then intValue = _ oConv.GetAlwaysDelete(Application.session.DefaultStore) If intValue = _ Outlook.OlAlwaysDeleteConversation.olAlwaysDelete Then Debug.Print "olAlwaysDelete" ElseIf intValue = _ Outlook.OlAlwaysDeleteConversation.olAlwaysDeleteUnsupported Then Debug.Print "olAlwaysDeleteUnsupported" ElseIf intValue = _ Outlook.OlAlwaysDeleteConversation.olDoNotDelete Then Debug.Print "olDoNotDelete" End If End If End If End Sub
