Remarks

The EmailAddress (NonEmptyStringType) and ItemId elements identify a mailbox or distribution list.

The EmailAddress (NonEmptyStringType) element identifies a mailbox or distribution list by SMTP address.

The ItemId element identifies a mailbox by an item identifier, which is associated with a particular mailbox.

The ItemId element cannot be used for sending a message to a distribution list or a contact in a public contacts folder. An error will be thrown if this is used in a CreateItem, UpdateItem, or SendItem operation when an attempt is made to send a message to a distribution list or contact in a contacts public folder. Use the ExpandDL operation to get the SMTP address and then send the message by using the EmailAddress (NonEmptyStringType) element instead of the ItemId element.

Another element, Mailbox (Availability), provides information for availability operations.

The schema that describes this element is located in the IIS virtual directory that hosts Exchange Web Services.
