PR_RETENTION_FLAGS documentation missing a definition for the 0x80 value? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I've been doing some development using EWS (Exchange 2010 SP1) to apply personal archive tags to mailbox folders, and I've noticed that the PR_RETENTION_FLAGS property frequently has a value of 0x80. For example, if I create a new folder through Outlook 2010 or OWA, and then use MFCMAPI to check the folder properties I see this value for the PR_RETENTION_FLAGS property. I can also reproduce this value if I set a folder's archive tag back to "Folder default" from a personal tag. This value isn't defined in the reference for that property (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee202166(v=exchg.80).aspx, as far as I can tell). It seems to be cleared after the MFA process runs.

    Does anyone know what this value means?

    Thanks, Jason

  • Hi Jason, there are actually 2 values that need to be added to the table in MS-OXCMSG section 2.2.1.50.6. I have filed a request to have this information added to a future release of the documentation.
